I had the absolute pleasure of being invited back to my secondary school to be the Guest Speaker at the Senior Awards Evening. In my speech I talked about my education and career to-date, and what I have learnt so far.
During my time at Investec, I had the opportunity to sit the Investment Operations Certificate through the CISI, and of course I jumped at the opportunity! I am always willing to learn, and I knew that if I wanted to progress my career in the Investment Industry, the IOC would be a necessity. Now that I recruit for the Investment industry, I come across many candidates who are currently undergoing the IOC qualification, so I thought I would share my experience and give some of my tips for successful completion.
One of the most common questions I get asked as a recruiter is: “What can I do to improve my CV?”. There is a lot of information out there to help people write effective CVs, but I thought I would share my personal top tips from a recruiter point of view. Each role can potentially attract tens, if not hundreds, of applicants. Recruiters will often only spend a few seconds scanning a CV initially, so you need to make sure your experience stands out.
