Capital W Executive Team 2014 What's the best advice you've ever received? "Nothing in life is free, there is a trade off to everything.' I would like to let the readers ponder about this advice themselves.
What is your favourite thing about Capital W? Whilst it's very hard to choose one favourite thing about Capital W, my favourite aspect would be that you get to meet likeminded, driven students. Not only do you develop a network of contacts, but you also gain a support network of female students who are always willing to give advice about anything relating to university, career paths or even just life generally.
Courtney Moses President Fourth year Commerce/Law
Where is the best place to study? My favourite place to study is definitely the Law Library. It's the quietest study space on campus, and there are always powerpoints available if you need to charge anything.
Yafei Fang Communications Director
Third year Commerce/Economics
What is your favourite thing about Capital W? Being able to meet a variety of people: students, alumni and professionals, learning and emulating their strengths.
What have you gained by being part of Capital W? Capital W has given me the opportunity to be proactive and to connect with the business world earlier than otherwise. I have formed professional relationships and friendships with inspiring women and men, and have had the fulfilling experience of being a leader and learner.
Jewel Zhu Vice-President
What's the best advice you've ever received? Always set out to achieve, and not merely to aspire.
Fourth year Commerce/Law
Martha Chan Student Liaison Director
What is the best advice you've ever received? Be proactive and go out to find new opportunities, opportunities don't find you. What do you know now, that you wish you had known in first year? First year counts in university, in terms of social and academics! Make the most of it.
Where is your favourite place to study? Max Brenner's
Fourth year Commerce/Economics
What do you know now, that you wish you had known in first year? Time is of the essence, figure out your personality and build character through whatever means e.g. trying different part time jobs, interning, travelling or living by yourself. This will eventually help make career choices easier in the future.
Fourth year Commerce/Science
What is your favourite thing about Capital W? Capital W has given me the most amazing network of friends and mentors across different disciplines, year levels and backgrounds. The people I meet always inspire me with their stories and willingness to share their experience.
Jessica Qin Treasurer
What is your favourite way to keep organised? I make use of the calendar on my phone, as well as a physical organiser for keeping to do lists and anything I need to jot down. I feel that the key to being organised is to not be overambitious when setting your goals, and keeping track of what you have already achieved during the day.

Yafei Fang Communications Director
It has been an interesting summer for the market and economy. Over the past few weeks we've seen significant losses in the equities markets. Investors participated in a sell-off of emerging economy currencies, stocks and bonds. Some speculate this to be a result of lower risk appetite and investor dollars moving back to the US market as the interest rates rise, leading to a repatriation of investor capital back to the US. Despite the recent events, there is perhaps an undercurrent of optimism, with many IPOs in the works for the year and strategists voicing thoughts on the possibility of continuing the bull market into 2014. Looking briefly at Japan, the Nikkei joined the rest of the world in the equities slide, at one point falling down to 14000pts. At Davos, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe noted that he planned for "Womenomics" to enhance the role of women in the workplace. "I will create an environment where women can realise their aspirations both at work and at home". Abe sees the greater participation of women as part of the work force as being desirable in solving the persistent issue of an ageing population and stimulating economic growth. Some have again begun to question Abe's aggressive policies. Abe has not completely fleshed out the reforms he's promised Japan. Additionally, an upcoming sales-tax increase in April is expected to have a negative effect on the economy. However, the enactment of a 5.47 trillion yen supplementary budget to help finance a stimulus package is expected to cushion the contractionary effect of the sales-tax hike.
US labour market amongst other fundamental factors in their tapering decisions. The US Federal Reserve is expected to continue the pace of tapering, with a forthcoming reduction to US$65billion per month despite the recent sell off in equities. The world markets will remain keen observers of any economic data that comes of the US economy. Ben Bernanke has also stepped down from his position as chairman of the Federal Reserve to be replaced by Janet Yellen, the first female chairman of the US Federal Reserve. Moving onto China we note that manufacturing PMI data out of China in January suggests that manufacturing in the Chinese economy may have lost its momentum. Possibly signalling lower demand for commodities and energy in future. The services PMI also fell to 50.7, the lowest in nearly two and a half years. China, being a large source of global demand, in particular for other emerging markets has led to great uncertainty and volatility. China's central bank, the Peoples Bank of China has been struggling to rein in a credit boom from stimulus supplied during the GFC. This has lead to a fears of a liquidity crunch, with high short term rates and higher costs of credit default insurance. Fears about the risks entailed in China's trillion dollar shadow-banking industry also remain a concern. Alas, information is quickly outdated and new insights emerge. The Market ReCap being less than a page long, is merely a taste of the global events that have transpired since the last edition. I encourage the readers to follow the financial news and take a real interest in the global economy.
In the last edition I noted the speculation on US tapering. Last December the senior US Federal Reserve officials began tapering its monthly asset purchases by US$10billion a month to US$75billion. Ben Bernanke in his December address had expectations for a pick-up in growth and further improvement in the US economy. The US Federal Reserve pays special attention to the health of the The ReCap 2014 Issue 1 |Page 4
The Art of Networking
Martha Chan Student Liaison Director
Networking to many is an awkward or unpleasurable experience. When talking to a sponsor, many are concerned about maintaining a stimulating conversation, asking for the right information about the job position or company, whilst at the same time making a lasting impression on the sponsor. It is important for those who are overwhelmed to strip down to basics and remember that networking is the act of building and maintaining connection with others so that both parties have positive outcomes. Read on to break pre-conceived notions of networking and to gain more confidence in this art. Myth 1: Networking simply involves acquiring lots of contacts, meeting as many people as possible, and filling your calendar with events Networking involves establishing long-lasting meaningful relationships with people. Don’t feel pressured into trying to talk to every person at an event, instead better results can be achieved if you focus on a few people and spend more time getting to know them. Myth 2: To be successful at networking, you must be an excellent conversationalist Building rapport comes with practice. Trial the suggestions listed below and use those that work best for you: Starting Conversations -
Smile and introduce yourself. Ask about their position and work. Engage in considerate gestures e.g. if getting food, ask if they want something to eat
Maintaining conversations -
Ask open ended questions, particularly “how” or “what” questions Ask about their opinion on latest topics in industry. (Keep it positive) Focus the questions about them - people like talking about themselves Introducing new members to conversation
Ending conversations: -
Thank them for their time and insight into industry, company etc. Politely excuse yourself to go to toilet, get food, drink etc.
After the Event If you have received a name card or contact details from a sponsor, don’t forget to send them an email the next day reminding them who you are, what you discussed and ask them if they would like to have coffee some time or if they need help with anything. Myth 3: Networking primarily involves selling yourself Promotion is a good strategy for those who are skilled at it but for those that are not, you can alternatively talk about your achievements and ask for advice in progressing in your career. For those that are shy and do not like to reveal too much about themselves, you can actively listen, pay attention to small verbal, visual cues and ask wellformed questions. This way you can show you are interested and have depth whilst at the same time stick to your own networking style.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH LAUREN WADE What extracurricular activities were you involved in, and what would you recommend?
Lauren Wade Associate Global Corporate and Investment Banking (Financial Institutions Group)
I was quite involved in the Commerce Society at university, initially to meet people. By fourth year, I had become President which took up a lot of my time. I was also involved in student politics, sat on a Finance Committee and joined a touch football team too. But I would recommend that you turn up to these meetings at university and pick something you like to do. It’s important to be involved in extracurricular activities as a way to enhance your university experience, not necessarily because it looks good on your CV.
What is your background? I am an Associate in the Financial Institutions Group within the Global Corporate and Investment Banking division, going into my 5th year here. I graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce (Liberal Studies) with Honours in Finance at Sydney University. Prior to joining Merrill Lynch, I completed internships in equities sales and in investment banking. In 2010 I joined equity capital markets for 2 years which is a hybrid team that sits between banking and equity, and we advise and execute equity offerings. To broaden my experience and skill set, I moved internally to my current role which I’ve been in for 2 years now. This is a sector coverage role, covering all products in one sector, maintaining relationships with our clients and generating ideas. Describe yourself in 3 words Diligent, friendly and ambitious. In hindsight, what advice would you give to a first year? Go on exchange! I was caught up in the first couple of years of university in part time work and realised a bit too late that I needed to tick some other boxes, invest time in other activities. Because once you start working you won't have the same time for that experience. It’s all about balancing your time at university with getting life experience be it through travelling, interesting jobs or meeting new people.
How did you end up on your career path? What do you think were your first steps? I guess it started with choosing my degree. I enjoyed Economics in high school and it gave a good overview. My first steps included pursuing what I liked through my studies. Being proactive by meeting and talking to older students about their work experience/internships gave me good insight into what each firm and sub-industry is all about. Be open to opportunities and not be rigid to pass up opportunities when they come along. What skills do you find yourself using the most? Particular traits that I find myself using the most are the ability to learn quickly and think logically. My role involves working a lot in unchartered territory and starting from the ground up. Using common sense and commercial reasoning proves to be very useful especially when knowledge comes and goes so quickly. What is exciting in your field at the moment? There’s a sense that 2014 will be the year where the global markets recover. I think there could be a real uptick in IPO/equity activity this year with a solid pipeline and given the number of years of benign market activity. However this may also be coloured by New Year optimism.

Can you grab opportunities? We interviewed Sheena Liu, one of Commonwealth Bank’s 2013 Graduates, to find out what it’s really like being a graduate at CommBank. What can students expect from the CommBank Graduate Program? SL: Throughout your program, you rotate through different teams, attend training, participate in working groups outside of your day job, join volunteering and community initiatives and work on grad projects – it’s a recipe for variety! What do you love about the Graduate Program? SL: You’re surrounded by people who want to help you learn and grow no matter where you are in the Group. People really ‘get’ what being a graduate is about and as a result, you’re given some great opportunities for professional development. What makes you wake up and go to work every morning? SL: Work is much more than just work at CommBank. You’re challenged to be exceptional in every way, be it in your ‘day job’, volunteering, projects or graduate events. And you make some great friends along the way! How much responsibility does a grad get in the first year of their Graduate Program? SL: The level of responsibility given to graduates is incredible. You work independently with clients. You’re responsible for your own projects. You present to senior leaders. Work hard, show you can deliver, and you will be given big responsibilities. What’s the best piece of advice you have for students hoping to work here? SL: Clearly articulate why you want to work in your chosen field - be loud about your motivation. Demonstrate your cultural fit - make it personal. Do your research - show you're invested in a future together.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH KAREN WANG Karen Wang Consultant, Actuarial Services Bachelor of Commerce (Actuarial Studies, Finance and Financial Economics) UNSW alumnus (2012) In hindsight, what advice would you give to a first year?
I enjoyed the orientation camps so much that I went four times; as a camp participant in my first year, then as a camp leader twice and finally as camp organiser. Lastly, it's very important that you get involved in your first year straight away. Participate in activities that you are passionate about and try something new. How did you end up on your career path?
When you first go to university, you think there is a lot of freedom. This is true, however it is important to get your Weighted Average Mark (WAM) up in first year. This is because university becomes much harder in the later years. Many occupations have a base WAM, and you will need this WAM to put yourself in the position of getting an interview. Therefore, remember that study is a priority. I also really recommend going on exchange. I went to Boston College in my last semester. Exchange broadens your horizons. My friends who have been on exchange all say that it makes you a better version of yourself and allows you to interact with new people easily. If you apply for exchange in the second semester of your first year, it is also likely your WAM will be highest and you will have the broadest range of exchange partner universities to choose from. What extracurricular activities were you involved in, and what would you recommend? In my first few years at university I was on a business cadetship with BNP Paribas, working 20 hours a week as well as studying full time. The first society I joined was the Volleyball Club. I was also involved with the Actuarial Society (ASOC) and Business Society (BSOC) and was the Vice President Internal for both societies. Those roles gave me opportunities to develop interpersonal and coordination skills. It was a lot of fun organising events and working as a group. Through those societies, I also got to meet people who were not in my year, I found this extremely valuable. Orientation camps were also great fun. They were fantastic opportunities to make new friends.
In high school I was good at maths and interested in the business aspect of maths, so it was logical to combine both aspects when I was looking for a suitable career. I studied Actuarial Studies at university so the obvious step was to move onto actuarial consulting. What skills do you find yourself using the most? Teamwork is the most important skill as I am always working on projects with different types of people, who all have different personalities. Also, communication skills are vital as I work with people of different ages, who are often older and have more experience. Actuarial consulting is a very technical field and the technical skills that I use now were not gained from university, but learnt on the job. There was a steep learning curve. Actuarial consulting also involves working with external clients and the interpersonal skills required were gained from my university experiences. It is essential that you know how to form relationships as you are constantly working with people and businesses. Are there any misconceptions about your field? Yes, definitely. The general misconception is that actuarial consulting is very hard and involves a lot of maths. This is true. However, we have programs to help us and don't need to calculate everything by ourselves or by hand!
Also, some believe that actuaries are introverted and enjoy being in front of a computer all the time. This is untrue, at EY, the actuaries are loud and lots of fun! The ReCap 2014 Issue 1 |Page 11
Goldman Sachs Corporate Advisory Career Paths: Analyst to Managing Director Corporate Advisory (Sydney) colleagues share some insights into their careers and advice for 2014.
Taryn Pieterse, Analyst, M&A Team Bachelor of Commerce (Finance) and Science (Maths), University of Queensland 1. Describe yourself in 3 words Organised, determined and friendly 2. What advice would you give to a first year? University has a lot more to offer than just class, I would thoroughly recommend making the most of everything. Whether it be social sport, exchange programs, networking events or just coffee with new friends 3. What extracurricular activities were you involved in at University? Outside of classes I enjoyed working for the school of economics and playing in a social netball team. I would also recommend getting involved in student societies as it is a great way to broaden your network, meet potential employers, broaden your knowledge of your chosen industry and are often a lot of fun 4. How did you end up in your current role? I received a graduate job offer after completing an internship at Goldman Sachs over the summer.
Laura Mineo, Associate Director, Financing Group Bachelor of Commerce (Liberal Studies), majoring in Finance and Econometrics, University of Sydney 1. Describe yourself in 3 words Hardworking, personable, analytical 2. What advice would you give to a first year? Pick majors that you are interested in. When it comes to working in the finance industry – our training programs are great and you’ll learn what you need to know on the job. 3. How did you select your career path? What were your first steps? I started turning up to employer presentations during my first year at Uni. It was a great way to meet people in the industry and learn early-on what kind of opportunities were out there. Through one of these events, I was able to land a short stint at a broking firm, which then led to a summer internship at an accounting firm and finally a scholarship (with work experience) at an investment bank. 4. What skills do you find yourself using the most? Written and verbal communication skills are critical. 5. What is exciting in your field at the moment? I work in our risk management team covering interest rate, FX, commodity and equity derivatives. It’s a really broad product area that is continually changing.
Sarah Rennie, Managing Director, Equity Capital Markets Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Law, University of Sydney 1. Describe yourself in 3 words Motivated, honest, optimistic 2. What advice would you give to a first year? Make the most of your university experience; seek out diverse and interesting subjects and opportunities. Once you get a job you will wish you had more time to study what you are passionate about. Employers are not simply looking for people who have great marks in a particular set of courses. They are looking for candidates who can demonstrate they are bright, hardworking, well-rounded and capable. 3. How did you select your career path? What were your first steps? I studied law and was a paralegal during university then was a corporate lawyer for the first 2 years of my career. During my time as a lawyer, I had a number of opportunities to work on transactions with investment banks. I increasingly got the sense that it would be an interesting and challenging career. I was lucky enough to be given a couple of interviews with some investment banks and ultimately landed a job as an analyst in investment banking. 4. What skills do you find yourself using the most? In equity capital markets we draw upon market experience, financial analytical skills and an understanding of the legal regime to execute transactions. 5. What is exciting in your field at the moment? After a long period when the window for initial public offerings (IPOs) was effectively shut, there has recently been a surge in new issuance. It is always really interesting and rewarding to bring a high quality company to market.

TIPS FOR MAKING THE MOST OUT OF UNIVERSITY As a sponsor of Capital W, Macquarie is delighted to be amongst the first to welcome you to student life at the University of New South Wales. Whilst the transition to university life can feel daunting, it’s an exciting time, and your first year will undoubtedly be filled with challenges, exposure to new ideas, and plenty of opportunities to learn new skills and make new friends. Below are our top tips for maximising student life, particularly in your first year. We look forward to meeting with many of you throughout your university journey and wish you all the best for the weeks and months ahead.
Tips for Making the Most Out of University #1: Get involved Rather than overextending yourself by joining every society on campus and attempting to be involved in numerous extra-curricular activities, participate in societies or activities that relate to your interests (eg sports, music, hobbies or career-focused). Seek opportunities to take on positions of responsibility to maximise your membership and participation. In doing so, you’ll be developing transferable career skills, and demonstrating your initiative. Joining societies that are focused on your industry of interest is also a valuable way to learn more about potential career opportunities and build contacts through attending networking events.
you an advantage over your peers as employers want the best and brightest students. So don’t be afraid to stand out: ask the lecturer that extra question, read that extra chapter and make those additional notes. #3: It’s never too early to start thinking about your career Many of your initial academic challenges will be centred on your subjects; however don’t forget to set aside some time to consider the outcome of your efforts, and the direction you’d like your career to take. Take advantage of every opportunity presented to you; maximise your society membership, learn about different industries, network and develop connections with peers and industry representatives and gain relevant work experience. Attend skills workshops organised by your careers centre, such as application and interview training so you’re able to put your best foot forward when applying for internship or graduate roles. #4: Lastly and most importantly, have fun Time flies when you’re having fun and university is no exception. University is a time to enjoy yourself, meet new people and relish your independence. Take time to enjoy this learning opportunity before entering the corporate world. Balance is the key, so take the time to have fun.
#2: Grades really do count So you’ve chosen your societies, got your social life planned and are well immersed in university life. So what next? It’s time to STUDY. The end result of university is to graduate with your degree while gaining knowledge and experience along the way. If you’re thinking of applying for internships or graduate roles in the future, transcripts are an important part of your application. Strong grades give

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH KATE SCHACHTEL Kate Schachtel Associate, Foreign Exchange Sales Bachelor of Commerce (Finance and Economics) and Bachelor of International Business Griffith University, Gold Coast
1. Describe yourself in 3 words: Enthusiastic, ambitious and people-oriented. 2. What do you wish you had known when you were a first year? How important and rewarding it is to completely immerse yourself in university life. Your time at university will be some of the best years of your life. Make the most of it by getting involved, joining clubs and partaking in different experiences such as studying abroad. I studied for one semester in San Francisco and had the best time of my life! You learn so much about yourself and form great connections with people from all over the world. 3. What extracurricular activities were you involved in, and/or what would you recommend? As well as committee and group involvement, I would recommend getting a casual job over your university years and making the most of it. I worked at Target for six years and learned a great deal through working with difficult customers, understanding the value of team work and taking on additional responsibility to progress. I was lucky enough to be promoted to Supervisor at 17 years of age and this allowed me to learn valuable leadership skills. I would also highly recommend doing an internship in the penultimate year of your degree. Not only does it
look great on your resume, but it is extremely valuable in giving you an idea of what you might like to do with your career when you finish university. 4. Do you have advice for students who are unsure of what to major in their business degree? Don’t worry, it’s still early days. Use your first year to study a range of core subjects. Determine which ones you enjoy and would like to learn more about over the rest of your degree. In my experience, when you apply for Graduate jobs, most employers aren’t that focused on which major you studied. They look more for good grades, involvement in extracurricular activities, as well as passion and motivation to succeed. When it comes time to apply for jobs, think about applying to companies that provide services that utilise the subjects you enjoy the most. Through your interview process, seek out firms where you feel the people and company are most closely aligned with your personality, values and aspirations. 5. What was your first year out of university like? It was great! It takes a little while to adjust to working full-time hours, but you will be fine if you find a job that you’re interested in and with a great work environment. After graduating, I commenced an eight month Graduate program in the Financial Markets division of Westpac’s Institutional Bank. Financial Markets is essentially the trading floor of Westpac. It’s pretty similar to what you’ve seen in movies – a dynamic and fast paced environment where everyone watches market movement and gets excited by data releases. I spent six weeks in six different teams of the floor where I learnt about trading, sales and research in Foreign Exchange, Commodities and Debt Markets. Everyone was extremely helpful in offering me guidance and teaching me about their role, no matter their level of seniority. It was a rollercoaster of a time with a very steep learning curve but it was certainly a positive experience for my first year in corporate life.
