Financiers of the Future

March 9th, 2011

Central Foundation’s partnership with Capco has recently taken the Year 13 Business students to a whole new level of commercial knowledge. Capco is a global business and technology consultancy dedicated solely to the financial services industry. City of London consultants spent three weeks putting Diploma students through their paces as part of their ‘Careers and Employment’ unit.

Students were invited to prepare a CV and covering letter to apply for the post of Administration Assistant at the firm’s head office, before being offered an interview time.

Filled with trepidation, some students almost turned back on the arrival, intimidated by the shiny corporate foyer. Once across the threshold, however, they managed to field most of the questions and create a good impression, using the skills they had learnt from earlier preparation sessions. We are not sure whether one student’s declaration that his biggest weakness was that he was perfect would have earned him a job offer!
