Which of the industries interests me? The term banking and finance simply refers to a sector of the economy which provides consumers with financial services.

I am primarily interested in corporate financing, which simply consists of providing the funds for corporations. The fact that risks are involved and predicting profitability for shares prices also allows the adrenaline to be pumping which I like.
The jobs which I am currently interested in regardless of the current economic climate are stockbroker, accountant, equity analyst, basically any job field which allows me to carry out predictions and maximise an entity wealth. I tend to have good analytical and teamwork skills.
