What job are you going to be applying to with this CV? Another BO role?
Generally, I would say that the detail is very good. You give clear, tangible examples of how you have provided value to the business you work for. You have shown that you are diligent in your approach to work.
I can't really see much wrong with this, you present yourself as a good Finance & Risk controller. But is that what you're trying to pervay in your CV?
- you use 'identified' 4 times, 'routinely' 3 times, and you use 'handled' 2 times - I'd vary the verbs a bit
- 'in parallel with studies' strikes me as unnecessarily wordy - just put 'alongside studies'
- switch the word 'to' in 'March 2014 to present' with a dash
- analysed is spelled with an 's' - honestly a minor detail if we're being especially picky
In terms of detail, I think you're doing very well. Just be careful with minor mistakes that can drag your CV down.
Thanks for your reply! I want to apply to a FO position, ideally M&A. Do I stand a chance? Should I rewrite this experience if I am looking for a FO role in M&A?
To be honest, moving to FO won't happen. It's even very rare from MO (kweku adoboli).
Oh I thought you were already working FT, that changes everything. So you'll be in your 2nd or 3rd year this sept?
Oh boy, then of course you should be applying for FO summers (though we didn't see your resume yet). It was just an internship in your first year, if anything, it strengthens your application.
edit: so im taking you would be applying for BBs in Sweden, not in the UK? not sure about that one although I think it would be similar -> still aim for FO. Which uni you attend?
