About Candice's Career

Since graduating, what have you gone on to do? 
My current role encompasses working on risk exposure of foreign currency payment and dealing with trading system faults.

It wasn't really what I had planned out but I'm enjoying my current job.

About Candice's Newcastle Experience

What was your favourite thing about your course?
My favourite thing about the course is how kind and helpful the staff at the University are. They really helped me a lot when I was still adapting to the different system and culture.

Were you involved in any other extra curriculum activities or societies during your time here?
I volunteered in a charity called Cats Protection and helped them with fundraising. 

About Candice's Future

How do you see future technologies and new ways of working (Future of Work) affecting your sector?
There will be more technologies affecting the exchange market. There have been talks that artifical intelligence might completely replace the foreign exchange trader but I think people will still be needed to make decisions

Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?
Probably work in a different department if I have a chance but I'll still be working in the same company.
