Farnaz, 19, London Met student> 36> 37I joined London Met in 2004, and began working with Professor Simon Hallsworth* on a number of research projects that have attempted to establish the reality of gangs in the UK and the offending profile of gang groups. I have spent the last 89 years contextualising and redefining the gang. My work offers a critical appraisal of the dominant discourse around gang-related violence. I worked for various organisations, including the Metropolitan Police, The Youth Justice Board, Borough Councils and charities that want to understand gang behaviour. Im an applied social researcher, so I have done a great deal of empirical research with young people involved in street-based groups or gangs. Over the last decade, I have worked on a number of projects focusing on gangs. One, commissioned by the Youth Justice Board, looked at young womens involvement in gang-related offending. The research found that, contrary to the American literature on gangs, there were no initiation rituals amongst the UK groups sampled and that young womens involvement in street-based groups, fighting, and weapons use, was largely minimal in comparison to their male peers. I also teach quite a bit. This semester I am running a new module it is very popular, with 196 students on it! The focus of the module is on the engagement of youth in crime and violence. It offers a critical perspective of some of the dominant theories about young peoples involvement in deviant and law-breaking behaviour. In the module I share some of my findings so the students always have access to new research. * Previously the director of London Mets Centre for Social and Evaluation Research (CSER)Staff profile Tara Young, senior research fellow (Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities), author and researcher in UK gang membership> 38> 39I got involved with the Student Enterprise Programme back in 2011. I was told about it by a fellow graduate from London Met (Thomas Kulbokas Made in Shoreditch, Nearby Digital). I remember meeting him for a coffee and him telling me about these University facilities where you could use shared office space and meeting rooms for free (initially). I thought it was great and got in touch with the person then in charge (Matthew Connelly) and he contacted me a couple of weeks later as soon as there was something available.I had started my business from my bedroom and was renting meeting rooms at a Christian place in central London which, at the time, was taking a considerable chunk of my income. Having a base at the Accelerator really helped me establish my company and give an image of professionalism.Once at the Accelerator, I met other entrepreneurs and accessed multiple business development seminars and workshops. All of this really inspired me and helped me turn my bedroom business into a fast growing enterprise now encompassing a music management company (Intruder Records/Tidal Wave Records), a music law consultancy (Avenant Law) and a music contracts web store (MusicLawContracts.com).During my degree I had the opportunity to sample multiple areas of knowledge and interact with people of different backgrounds and skills. This experience made me what I am today and shaped my work ethic. I was never interested in leaving university and working for a company for the next 30 years. I wanted to go out there and gain some work experience with companies I looked up to and then start my own enterprise. London Met gave all the tools and skills necessary to accomplish just this.Student profile Juan David Lopez, BA Music and Media Management graduate*, and creator of Avenant Law, Intruder Records/Tidal Wave Records, and MusicLawContracts.com* See BA Music Industry Management > 40London Met is the number one modern university in the UK for graduate starting salaries.Here at London Met, were committed to helping you get the skills and knowledge you need to succeed in your career.

After applying for several roles, I started an internship in a small company. During the internship, I was still applying for other jobs and the Careers Service has been always available to support me. After a few months of perseverance, I finally found the job I really wanted at Bloomberg, the world leading financial information provider. I was at Bloomberg for 3 years working as an analyst where I gained experience of working in a global company.

I was introduced to ex-industry professionals, who used their experience to teach me, and other programmes which encouraged that passion. Programmes such as the Work Placement module gave me hands-on experience and the Study Abroad Programme enabled me to visit the University of Tennessee Martin and learn about communications in the USA. It was whilst in the USA I came across the Talk PR internship; at the time I was very interested in working at a PR agency. When I returned to the UK, I researched further into the internship and came across the Taylor Bennett Foundation which surprisingly was starting a few days after my birthday - definitely a sign. My traineeship with the Taylor Bennett Foundation was a great experience. Having Talk PR sponsor the programme was a bonus; the agency introduced me to a sector of PR I had never experienced before. The 10 week programme gave me all the practical experience I needed to back up the theory I learnt at London Met. Having done my degree, it prepared me for presentations, writing press releases and targeting different media. For example modules such as Public Relations Strategy helped when simulating targeted campaigns for brands such as D&G. However, the main skill my degree gave me was the confidence to present. Public speaking and presenting is a key skill to have in the industry, and my three year degree gave me more than enough practice.Student profile Whitney Brown, Business School student > 48Journalism students visit Emirates StadiumGetting out in the community and finding a story is a big part of being a journalist.

East End Citizens Advice Bureau, St Mungos, Springboard for Children and the Terrence Higgins Trust are just a few of the not-for-profit organisations in which students have worked as witness service volunteer workers, volunteer receptionists, trainee advisers, literacy tutors, freelance magazine writers and assistant manager interns. Volunteering is a great opportunity to build your confidence and your CV, and has a positive impact on the local community and further afield.

Volunteering is a fantastic way to develop your skills...It allows you to apply what you learn in the classroom to a real-world situation, with tangible results. Not only are you giving back to the organisation and the community, but you get great material for your CV, valuable contacts and a rewarding experience.Voluntary organisations want you to get the most out of your time and often go out of their way to make sure that you develop the skills that you want and need.

Sally Munday, volunteer coordinator at the Science MuseumWork experience> 52> 53Choosing to study at London Met was one of the best decisions I ever made. With the campus situated in the heart of the city of London it was easy to network with City professionals and make practical sense of the complex financial and economic theories I learnt in class.I thoroughly enjoyed the course content and the way the lectures, workshops and assessments were impeccably delivered and administered. As a single mother I received incredible support and guidance from both teaching and non-teaching staff during my studies at London Met.In my second year, I enrolled on the Short Work Placement Module with BusinessWorks, as part of my study programme. With the amazing support and guidance of London Mets BusinessWorks and the Careers Service, I managed to secure a five-week placement as an accounts officer. This helped me sharpen my employability skills and further prepared me for the corporate world, as later on I secured a well-paid summer internship with Barclays Capital through SEO London. Before the start of my final semester, I began applying for investment banking graduate positions. Goldman Sachs shortlisted and invited me to take part in two assessment centres.Thereafter, in December 2010 I was offered a full-time position as a derivatives funding operations analyst on the 2011 Graduate Programme. My job entails liquidity management, risk and control management, amongst various other complex tasks. I really enjoy my role and the people I work with at Goldman Sachs. It feels even more rewarding to find that a lot of the course material I learnt at London Met is relevant to my work at Goldman Sachs and to present day society.

The Duke met several of the Universitys student entrepreneurs before officially opening the Student Hatchery London Mets successful business start-up programme.> 56> 57I was born in Ghana, West Africa. After undergraduate study, I was called to the Bar in 1985 at the Inner Temple. I completed my pupillage at 9 Stone Buildings, Lincolns Inn and began working at Tooting and Balham Law Centre as a housing lawyer. Working at the Law Centre was a fantastic experience for the first time I had control of my own case load and could go to court without having to be instructed by a solicitor beforehand. In 1989 (while employed at the Law Centre) I returned to my studies and obtained an LLM. During my masters, I focused on areas such as immigration, civil litigation, landlord and tenant, and African family law.I have been a member of staff at London Met since 1989. I taught at both undergraduate and postgraduate level in the areas of property, immigration and asylum and evidence, and am now an academic leader.Over the years I have seen so many people achieve extraordinary things time and time again. That is why we say that we provide excellent education which is still affordable.Anyone thinking of going into the legal profession needs to consider that the profession is extremely competitive and those who come from certain backgrounds do have an advantage such as contacts and confidence. However, in my opinion (based on my 24 years at London Met), prospective students will find that academics hold a fundamental belief that it does not matter what your background is you have the potential to succeed if you are willing to work hard and to believe in yourself as we believe in you. What has helped me in my career is a belief in my own ability, hard work, and the importance of building good relationships with whoever you come across in life.Staff profile Owsun Abebrese, academic leader for the Faculty of Law, Governance and International Relations, recruitment co-ordinator, barrister at law, and Judge of the First Tier Immigration Tribunal> 58Can I afford to go to university?

I love working in London and feel privileged to do a job that I enjoy a lot. I think having multimedia on your CV definitely stands out for employers thats one of the things they are looking for. It helps having experience of a broad range of different subjects that they cover in a multimedia degree Im specialising in front end web development but it helps to have the background skills Photoshop, being able to do video editing if need be. The extra things that I did at Uni helped me a lot things like working for the WoW Agency for example. Another module we did was about presentation skills. In my job Ive had to do presentations to 30 people that module really helped me. I found that having confidence in what Im saying counts for a lot. Winning the prize for best undergraduate Multimedia project at London Met gave me huge confidence going into the workplace, its the sort of thing that stands out on a CV and proves to employers that you can meet your goals.
