Taking on short-term or project-oriented positions can help you develop new skills and possibly move you into a full-time job in investment banking, according to an article in the Financial Times online. With financial firms and recruiters being flooded with resumes, it pays to be a little creative in your approach to your next job.
Put your time out of work to good use by upgrading your skills or doing volunteer work, suggests Jo Causon, director of corporate affairs at the Chartered Institute of Management in London. Consulting or taking on an interim managerial job is another good options to consider, because these jobs expose you to opportunities within a company. You are also more attractive to companies when you are already employed.
