Welcome to the start of the 2013-14 academic year! To help you cope with the influx of students looking for the latest careers information, our brand new guides are due to drop on your doorstep later this month, with PDF versions going live shortly thereafter.
To get your students focused on career planning, I’ve selected some articles that serve as introductions to certain key financial professions.

For a convenient way of sharing these articles with your students, head on over to our newsletter webpage.
