Jared White studies Business Management and Finance at Pearson College and is in his last year of study. Last summer, Jared was lucky enough to complete an internship at an Oxygen Finance and then be offered a part-time job alongside his study after.
What does your role at oxygen finance mainly involve on a day-to-day basis?
My role at Oxygen varies on a day to day basis. So far I've been involved in meetings with several key clients as well as helping to prepare presentations for senior management within Oxygen and Pearson. Other responsibilities have included some financial analysis of clients and suppliers as well as producing and updating various spreadsheets used throughout the company.
Do you think this will help when applying for jobs when you finish your degree?
So far I've been able to get an idea of how some of what we learn in the finance modules is applied when you're working and I think just having that experience of working in a team and in a business environment is always good to have on your CV.
