“It doesn’t matter where you start, it matters where you finish. Don’t just do the job for the money. Do your research, work hard…and it might work out.”

Garry Jones, CEO of the London Metal Exchange, says that our lives and the career path we go down shouldn’t be seen like a checklist – expecting to work at Company X by the time one is a certain age or saying that “By age Y, I will be married and have children” is unrealistic. Jones himself graduated with a degree in Geology and Geophysics; it would be later in his career that he became interested in banking and the financial industry. Jones stresses that it is important to take risks and not be afraid of failure. He also says that when speaking with other companies in hopes of employment, research is key.
