KT, Goldman Sachs, Equities Division, London

“I have recently been offered a job in Equity Derivatives at Goldman Sachs. I have turned down offers from HSBC, Morgan Stanley and Deutsche Bank, completed an internship with HSBC, and got to the final stage with Barclays Investment Bank. None of this would have been possible if it wasn’t for Peter and his team. I will be totally honest with you on the Harrison Careers service – the fee that I spent is the best money I have ever spent in my life, and probably will be in the future. I think the thing you need to understand is that Peter and his team are fantastic, but ultimately YOU have to do the work – that means three hours on each application form, contacting professionals, going to presentations, and keeping up with the finance world. It’s extremely demanding – but the rewards are amazing. I started this not believing I would ever get a job with an investment bank, however today I sit on an offer from the biggest and best investment bank in the world. The HCS strategy does work!”

CP, Amazon Web Services, Seattle

“Subscribing to Harrison Careers has been without doubt one of the best decisions I have made in the past 10 years. I had previously interviewed with several other big tech companies but was constantly told that I was just not “wide enough” or “deep enough” in my knowledge. I did not understand as I thought I had prepared well, but now I have gone through Harrison Careers I know I was not prepared at all. Harrison Careers will train you to answer impressively 95% of the questions you will get asked in interviews and the remaining 5% you will be able to answer on the spot because you will have had so much training. Harrison Careers will teach you how to stand out above the crowd, as the competition is fierce. For me, I was confident I had all the elements but Harrison Careers were able to help me bring them out in a way that sounded impressive and relevant.”

HS, JP Morgan Wealth Management, Los Angeles

“Peter is a fountain of knowledge and gives great advice… the key to his success is he does not tell you what you want to hear, he gives you solid advice – then it is up to you how you wish to follow. Don’t believe for one second that Peter will do all the work for you… you will have to practice, do the research etc. by yourself – but Harrison Careers will show you the best practical way of achieving your goal. In terms of the fee, Peter asked me if I thought it was a lot, I said honestly, NO… if you compare the fee you pay to your earning potential once you are in a blue chip such as JP Morgan, then it is nothing in my opinion. Knowing what I know now, I would have been prepared to pay a lot more!”

GB, Barclays Investment Bank Emerging Market Fixed Income Trading, London

“Before joining Harrison Careers I was a bit skeptical about whether it would help me to get hired, because I would have to borrow the money to pay for the service. The stakes were big for me. I made a decision to go for it and it was absolutely worth it, without exaggeration. It exceeded my expectations all the way through. From the very start I was disadvantaged for the career of my choice: I studied at a non-target school from where, on average, you would not expect to get hired by a leading employer, came from a foreign country which necessitates employer to apply for work permit, etc. Without Harrison Careers, I would for sure not have been recruited by any top investment firm – and now I have my absolute dream job!”

CC, Apple Data Platform Engineering, San Diego

“My overall experience with Harrison Careers Service is that it is a tough but fantastic and fulfilling way to land a role with any top technology company out there. With the help of Harrison Careers you feel empowered to go out there and really shine so that you impress your potential employer. Having said this, I think my first surprise was the amount of work and preparation needed to get up to speed with what is needed to succeed. Make no mistake about this, if you are serious about using Harrison Careers Service then you better be ready to work hard – very hard. Also you must follow all the materials and advice given to you. You cannot afford to cut corners. In the end this is the best way for you to get the results you want – I got the best job I could have possibly imagined, and although it took lots of work by me, I couldn’t have done it without Peter and his team.”

AR, UBS Equity Research, London

“As an international student and with no relevant work experience, looking back on the past few years, I now realize that I would never have achieved what I have if it was not for Harrison Careers. From day one I got a large amount of information which enabled me to be ahead of everyone else when it came to interviewing – and I had the opportunity to attend loads of different coaching sessions with truly outstanding industry experts. What you must realize though is that you have to be committed and really want it – all the information and the training is provided for you, but it is entirely up to you how you utilize it. I worked with real professionals in their fields who provided an outstanding service, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else.”

ZD, Morgan Stanley Equity Capital Markets, Hong Kong

“I wholeheartedly recommend Peter and the Harrison Careers team. I had tried applying through standard channels and achieved a few interviews but had failed to convert any of them. After signing on with HC, following Peter’s advice, going to dozens of practice interviews and leveraging the expertise of the coaches, I converted 5 of my 7 subsequent interviews into offers. If anything ever goes wrong during the process, tell Peter first and he will protect you. The service was outstanding. Patient, bespoke, and direct.”

HB, IBM Technology Garage, London

“What I found most useful about the Harrison Careers service was the access to technical training – of course you have to do the actual learning yourself, but I wouldn’t even have known where to start without their help. They provide you with BRILLIANT material to give you an edge over other candidates. They don’t write your applications – you have to do that yourself (although the materials they give you are pretty helpful). The coaches really helped me with how to tackle the coding assessments and how to show my thought-patterns during the interview. For sure I wouldn’t be at IBM now without that help.”

HJ, Accenture Technology Consulting, London

“I’m really grateful for the help of Harrison Careers. I saw myself improving dramatically with Peter’s notes covering every detail throughout the process, with coaching from his great team, the specially tailored advice, and the increasing motivations I got after each coaching feedback. They are incredibly organised and dedicated. I remember how Alison got coaching sessions organised within one day’s notice and I even spoke to Peter for my final assessment when he was on a holiday. It is absolutely worth even more than what I paid for.”

HS, Samsung Data Analytics, San Francisco

“One of the best things I think about the Harrison Careers service is that it provides a great opportunity to meet people (I mean the coaches) who were once in your position but have now landed their own roles with top companies. I found these people were a great source of information to let me know what the interview process might be like. In many cases their interview experience was still fresh in their mind, and the advice of such people was priceless for me. It is only through Harrison Careers Services that you will be able to meet such people whose sole purpose is to help you succeed. Generally, I think Harrison Careers is a unique and fantastic service for anyone serious about landing a role with a top company. It will literally cut months, if not years, off your time trying to land a lucrative role by yourself. And even if you could do it on your own, the service just gives you a great chance to know some very smart and enlightened people, people who could end up being your future colleagues or just good friends. This alone makes it worth it!”

XR, McKinsey, New York

“I used Harrison Careers to help me with my Finance and Consulting applications, and I’m thrilled to say that I am now working for my #1 choice – and loving every second. This is how the process works: once you sign on to HCS you will constantly be going through mock interviews, with Peter and with his huge team of coaches, and you will get instant feedback. They teach you everything about interviewing – how to answer every single question, and they give you so much information to use in your interviews – so for example if you have an equity research interview they will give you so much information like research reports that you could not have possibly got hold of without their help, which gives you a big advantage over other candidates. They teach you how to use that information and convey it across in an interview perfectly. The cost? It’s not cheap but, trust me, find the money. My signing bonus that I got as soon as I signed my contract covered the Harrison Careers fees. A word of warning though, if you do subscribe, have no illusions that you are going to have to work hard. Peter (who is fantastic) and his team will be there every step of the way with you, but you are going to have to put in the effort and time as well. If working for a top consulting firm is really, really what you want, then without doubt, you need to subscribe to this service to maximize your chances.”

SC, Clifford Chance, London

“I needed the help of Harrison Careers to start my career in corporate law – after their help, I landed internships at 5 law firms including Clifford Chance (UK’s no.1 firm). Could I have achieved the same results without Harrison’s assistance? Absolutely not: I knew nothing about corporate law whatsoever and had never interviewed with a law firm before. My first interview ever with a law firm was with the number one firm – and I got the offer! As I mentioned earlier – I knew nothing about law. I had no law related work experience before, was not studying law, and I still got 5 offers. Harrisons gave me all the relevant materials, and trained me mercilessly. They tell you what to do and how to do it – but you have to put the work in yourself.”

JS, Deloitte Assurance, Edinburgh

“I had a truly amazing experience with Harrison Careers and would not change a thing. Although it was a big commitment at the time – it is definitely money well spent. Harrison Careers makes you do many things that you probably wouldn’t have even thought about – I personally joined, and within six days I went through making a list of my top 10 achievements, had 4 mock interviews, one cold-calling session, a charm coaching session, and a case study session. After six days, having been trying unsuccessfully for so long… I was offered a job!”

JW, Willis Towers Watson, Boston

“First of all, you won’t be guaranteed a job, but I assure you if you work hard and follow Peter’s very single advice, you will have many offers from all the top banks, accounting and consulting firms. Secondly, Harrison Careers will help you solicit professionals, prepare professional emails and train you how to cold call these professionals – which will get you the initial stage… interviews. Then the coaches (who have all worked in the banks/accounting/consulting firms you’re applying to) will coach you on how to pass the interviews and get a full time offer. I ended up getting multiple offers, and accepted my job from one of the top actuarial firms in the world.”
