This dynamic area of work is a great place for graduates to start their<br /> careers in banking and investment, accountancy and financial management, and<br /> financial services. It is difficult to predict exactly how the sector will fare over the<br /> next 12 months, given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and Brexit around the<br /> corner, but you can be sure that we're here to help you show recruiters that you're<br /> the best candidate for the job. For the latest information about the impact of<br /> coronavirus on job hunting, recruitments processes, internships and graduate<br /> jobs, please check targetjobs.co.uk and nextstepsupport.org regularly.<br /> Meanwhile, discover:<br />  How do you secure an internship and make the most of it?<br /> <a title="TARGETjobs Finance 2021 page 1" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/b57fadeb?page=1"> targetjobs.co.uk/finance</a> <a title="TARGETjobs Finance 2021 page 2" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/b57fadeb?page=2"> </a> <a title="TARGETjobs Finance 2021 page 3" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/b57fadeb?page=3"> WELCOME 1 2021 Edition Editor's column TARGET</a> <a title="TARGETjobs Finance 2021 page 4" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/b57fadeb?page=4"> </a> <a title="TARGETjobs Finance 2021 page 5" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/b57fadeb?page=5"> 3 Get started IN TH</a> <a title="TARGETjobs Finance 2021 page 6" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/b57fadeb?page=6"> 4 GET STARTED Welcome to your career in finance </a> <a title="TARGETjobs Finance 2021 page 7" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/b57fadeb?page=7"> The places Traditionally many financial instituti</a> <a title="TARGETjobs Finance 2021 page 8" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/b57fadeb?page=8"> 6 GET STARTED What can you do in finance?
