In this video I cover the best to worst experience a student or graduate can get, and should seek, in order to make their CV (résumé) stand out when it comes to applying for spring weeks/insight weeks, internships and graduate schemes at investment banking firms, consulting firms and finance in general. Although this video is aimed at students and graduates applying to investment banks, consulting firms and the banking and finance industry broadly speaking, everything mentioned in this video is generally applicable regardless of what industry you are applying to. I touch on relevant work experience, irrelevant work experience, key competencies and soft skills, extracurricular activities, and more. I hope this video provides an informal perspective on building a strong CV (résumé) for applying to roles. Do consider hitting the like button and subscribing to the channel. Thanks for passing by.
