After Graduation

Goldman Sachs Analyst

Since graduating, Chloe has taken up the opportunity to work full time at Goldman Sachs within the investment banking division.

The role has allowed her to utilise many of the skills she learned throughout her degree, while providing an avenue to continue exploring areas of finance that she was interested in throughout her studies.

A lot of Chloe's closest friends from university are now working in the same industry - and even at the same firm.

You may not write essays in your career, but you will always be interacting with others and many will be your peers from classes. Make sure you get as involved as possible at university and always appreciate the valuable insights you can gain from your peers.
