I am currently in my final year at University of Central Lancashire doing an Bsch Computing Database Systems degree and I have decided I want to go into a consultant/analyst job after studying a few modules which look at the techniques involved in the profession.
Providing I keep up my current work and I do well in the exams I should be looking at a 2:2 degree, and its a very big ask to become a 2:1.
My question is with a 2:2 and no experience how easy is it to get my foot in the door? I am also looking to work in Manchester or the North West area where hopefully these jobs will be easy enough to come by
After reading alot of usefull information on the prospects website I believe I should start applying at companies soon because of fierce competition. They also say that having people skills etc is what they are looking for. I believe I have good people skills, however I am worried my lack of experience and a 2:2 degree will not even get me an interview to show them I am more capable than my academic grades suggest.
Any feedback will be great. Thank you.
