Application Success

When making applications, it is important to cover as many companies as possible, whilst ensuring that you still tailor each one to their firm. If you send the same CV to 100 companies, 99 of them will have received the wrong one. The DUFS has created a set of CV, Application Form and Covering Letter and Interview guides to help you perform to your best.

Do you have an interview coming up?

The DUFS maintains a database of current Durham students who have completed Spring Week or Summer Internship, or obtained graduate roles. If you would like advice with regards to interviewing with a specific firm or division, please submit an enquiry through our contact form.

We will hopefully be able to put you in touch with a student who has similarly interviewed with that firm in the past. If you are able to offer advice to other students, please join our database using the link below.

Learning from others

Durham University Finance Society endeavours to provide assistance to our current members to enable them to achieve their best.

If you are a current Durham student who has recently completed a Spring Week or Summer Internship, or secured a graduate role, please join our student database so we can help you pass on your advice and knowledge to fellow students. Whether it be a quick email or meeting up for a coffee, all help is appreciated.

You have no obligation to respond should a fellow student get in touch, and students are only given the contact details of the relevant persons when they show sufficient reason.
