Having spent over 6 years specialising in compliance, growing from the role of officer to taking over as the European Market Compliance Manager at a global trading company, (aged 25) Thomas Doran decided it was time to share his 'top tips and biggest blunders'.

Holding a Law Degree from Queens' University Belfast (LLB), an Investment management certificate (IMC,CFA) and being the Top Performing Graduate in Ireland in two diplomas in Professional Marketing (CIM, 2018) he knows a thing or two about working full-time and studying, taking an indirect career path and building a professional brand image.

Thomas was previously the Chairman for the Futures Industry Association(FIA) for Fin-tech and Cryptocurrency and was a member of the Agricultural Committee for Europe.

Graduates What You Need To Know

As Thomas explains "I have received endorsement from senior business executives, business federations and even a governor of one of the worlds largest youth organisations. I am currently working with the leading mental health charity in all of Ireland to get the book rolled out to as many graduates as possible."

Graduates What You Need To Know is written by a non-patronising early career professional who has ‘been there’ and is willing to share his top tips and biggest blunders to aid your career acceleration.

The guide can be read in less than 2 hours and has been carefully crafted to remove post graduation anxiety from any young person who has completed their degree and is wondering, what's next?

The e- book is available for download on Amazon at WWW.AMAZON.CO.UK/GRADUATES-WHAT-YOU-NEED-KNOW
