“Edge Hill gave me a footing within the professional world and their connections allowed me to contact Barclays”
Studying Information Technology Management for Business at Edge Hill highlighted Hafizur Rahman’s passion for project management and has provided him with a solid foundation on which to build his career.
Hafizur is on his way to conquering the banking industry after securing a place at global firm Barclays as an Asset Management Analyst.
“My role at Barclays as an Asset Management Analyst involves exploring the current status of servers, and recommending the next cause of action on those servers. I find each request really interesting as I have to investigate the problem, and then contact employees from around the world to find clues leading to how to resolve the problem. I feel very fortunate being accepted into such a reputable company and thankful for this opportunity.
“My course at Edge Hill provided me with an understanding of how businesses work and how evolving technology is transforming the way they are run. My degree educated me about how projects are managed, how tasks are delegated and how to define and reach an end goal.
“During my course the lecturers took the time to make sure I was aware of different paths I could follow after graduating, such as postgraduate studies. I feel that the University still continues to support me, keeping in touch via email and providing information on possible job opportunities, and I am grateful for all their support.
“I would advise current students to make sure that they strive to get their foot in the door of the industry that interests them, by obtaining work experience or a place on a graduate scheme, and to believe in their abilities and leave any self-doubt behind. They should do something they enjoy and success will follow. ”
