Mechanical engineer?

How about some resources?  Take a look at….

The Institution of Mechanical Engineers who put the development of professional engineers at the heart of what they do. An IMechE–accredited degree offers a path to membership of the Institution, opens up more job opportunities and shows employers that you are employable.

What’s on offer?

Taking informed decisions

is key when choosing your career path. An efc article (November 2016) gives some wise city_urbanadvice from Michael Lavelle, UK and Ireland head of corporate and investment banking and EMEA vice chairman of corporate and investment banking at Citigroup.

‘If you want to be among the 4% or so of students who make the cut for investment banks’ graduate programmes you need to be focused on this goal from the moment you start university. Instead, he says the point is to ensure that you’ve had enough different experiences to really inform the decision you make before accepting an investment banking job.’

His advice is not just relevant to the finance sector!
