“Business Awareness” – the missing link

If you’ve been tempted by some of the recent activity from investment banks courting postgraduates, how are you going to show them that, even though you’re a geologist / historian / sociologist, you’ve got what it takes to give Gordon Gekko a run for his money?

Well, our nice friends at JP Morgan are running an on-line trading game called Fantasy Futures. It opened at the beginning of October, but runs with weekly competitions until the end of November. You might not win the overall prize by joining part way through, but it will give you a feel for the world of investments and it looks to have some good resources for learning about financial markets – and you can put the fact that you’ve taken part in it straight on your CV.
