Our career coach gives advice to those who are questioning their career aspirations as they enter the workforce.
Question: I am currently completing a master’s degree (in enterprise and entrepreneurship) at the university of Leeds, and I’m looking to get a job in September 2022.
Since I was about 14 I have always aspired to work in the finance industry and have work experience in the sector as well as taking 2 CISI exams. However, I am worried that I perhaps have had too narrow a focus. I’m conscious that there may be other jobs more suited to my skill-set and goals. Hannah, Leeds
