Description

They want the top grades.

They want a degree from a good university.

They want 5 years worth of industry experience by the time you’re born.

And even if you have all those boxes ticked, it’s still not enough to secure that career you’ve been working towards your entire university career. Hours on cover letters, CV workshops, emails that never get replied to - aren’t you tired of it? Well Studio B is here to help!

In the heart of Kensington, we are bringing in career professionals from the venture capital and investment industries to give you advice on how to get that first foot on the ladder. Get your chance to ask questions to the people at the top of their game. Who knows? Maybe this will change everything.
