Today we welcome Bhanavi Sharma, our Ambassador in London. She is from New Delhi, India, did an internship in Berlin and is currently located in London. She completed her bachelor’s in Management from ESCP Business School and is currently pursuing her master’s in Accounting, Organisations and Institutions from the London School of Economics (LSE). So, let’s hear the story of her passion for finance!
I chose finance because I truly believe that no matter what the routine of someone with a finance job is, there are always problems to solve and challenges to face, even if it’s just trying to find the reason behind a variance in the income statement. These challenges, no matter simple or complex, are what keep me motivated to do my job!
I also love the degree of flexibility in the finance industry. If someone likes finance and fashion, they can pursue corporate fashion and if they are interested in finance and tech, they can work in a fintech startup. Also within pure finance, there are so many options from investment banking to insurance. I chose finance because I will always have so many career options and thus, the endless possibility to develop my skills and knowledge.
Lastly, the financial industry is continuously growing and evolving. Even though parts of finance may become obsolete due to technological developments, the entire industry can never disappear due to its importance in driving world economies.
Interesting how finance sounds right? I do think that if you enjoy the fast-paced environment which always urges you to step out of your comfort zone, finance is for you!
