'I have joined the full-time MIF program in 2013 to enhance the knowledge, and at meanwhile to look for a career opportunity in financial industry. With the help from career service center, I got the job offer in the capital market team of PwC Nederlands before accomplishing the program.
The MIF career center arranged various activities and events throughout the year, which I think were insightful and supportive. The career workshops in the first semester were structured to help students identify career objectives and understand the strengths. Later, the focus was given to the skills and strategies needed for job hunting. I attended most of the workshops, such as professional networking skills, employment contract and negotiations. I find them enlightening and practical.
Taking advantage of the small class scale, career center provided one-to-one coaching to students with different level of working experience. The speed interview training was impressive, as I got the opportunity to talk with five experienced recruiters and received their substantive feedback on how to standout in a real interview. Moreover, Kristina, a passionate career expertise, scheduled a mock interview session before my interview with PwC. She gave me tangible advice and helped me to overcome what has been holding me back.
In addition, I benefit from MIF’s strong network with alumni and leading organizations in the financial industry. Career center organized several company presentations and job fair, in which I can discover the career opportunity with the companies face-to-face and in depth. Actually, I learned the info of my current job from one of the company presentations.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank for the effort of career center. I believe that MIF students will benefit the most from their experience, professionalism and network resource.'
