I have 2 years experience in banking in middle office office and back office experience as well as internal automation projects. I’ve been working contract for 2 years and can’t seem to land any full time positions. My resume is optimized but I can’t seem to land any offers. Losing confidence by the day. Any advice?

Keep at it! It took me hundreds of applications and dozens of interviews to land the job I am in now. Persistence and try to connect with the right people who can help you get interviews

If you can't find a referral here, I would try over on Linked in. I usually have good luck over there! Best of luck to you.

Anybody been through an EY "Super Day" as an experienced hire? I think this is essentially a final round interview. What are the chances I land the role after making it this far?
