eFinancialCareers launches its latest guide to careers in banking and finance

« Careers in Financial Markets 2012 », the definitive guide
for finance students and graduates

London: eFinancialCareers, the leading global careers site for financial professionals, has just released its latest edition of "Careers in Financial Markets”, a key publication for students and graduates contemplating a career in the world of finance.

This year’s guide is broader in reach: it offers tips on how to make it through the application process in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), North America and Asia-Pacific. For the first time, the guide gives a bird’s eye view of each global financial centre and its individual strengths. It also discusses the hurdles international students may encounter when embarking on a global career.

The authoritative guide features profiles of the key market players who are currently recruiting, and lists the key skills sought after by employers.
Industry insiders and graduate recruiters give their top tips on what makes a good CV, how to deal with tricky questions, and how to avoid the most common howlers.

The guide also provides advice on interview techniques, and how to prepare for a S.T.A.R. interview (Situation, Task, Action, Result) – an interview method used by recruiters to assess candidates’ competencies by analyzing how they handled specific events in the past.

James Bennett, Managing Director for EMEA and APAC for eFinancialCareers comments: «Competition for Graduate Programmes is intense across the industry and only the best-prepared students and graduates will make it through the process. eFinancialCareers has worked very closely with finance and human resources professionals to deliver the most authoritative guide available in the industry. Graduates with global career aspirations will find the enriched content and expert advice invaluable.”
