How IABC membership can help students

In a globalized world where a career can be pursued anywhere, it is crucial for one to have a strong business network of like-minded professionals. As a student, starting a career in a very tough and competitive environment, connections are what sets one apart.

London is a city of opportunities but also one of competition. Finding the start to a career and building a unique network can be a tough task.

My professional career broadened up significantly due to the connections I’ve made and I feel now that the world is my oyster.
