I am a consultant specialising within Operations, Middle Office and Finance, covering the Investment Banking, Retail Banking, Insurance and Vendor/Fintech industries.
Go prepared, be yourself and believe in your abilities. One's personality is more important than most people realize in a professional working environment and in the hiring process. Do your best in letting it shine through, as well as being aware of your own weaknesses.
Make sure your long term career goals are achievable and reachable in your future firm rather than focusing on the short term rewards.
I was born and raised in the northern part of Sweden, yet lived on many continents. After obtaining my Masters degree in finance I worked in the back and middle office space for asset managers and investment banks in Sweden, Singapore and Tokyo for 10 years before switching to recruitment.
