The aim of this course is to provide you with the tools and techniques to make a positive impression as you begin

your City career. Graduates can no longer rely on their initial training or qualifications to carry them through

employment. Nor can they rely on their employer to provide everything they need to develop skills and

experience. Taking responsibility for their own lifelong continuing development is the key to long term success.

This course provides graduates with an insight into the impact that personal attitude and behaviour towards

others has in the work environment. Additionally it will explore tools and techniques for maximising their

performance as they embark on a career in the Financial Markets.
