Just finished my first year at University: what would you be doing now to land a placement year in my shoes? (anything is greatly appreciated)

Hello there, 

I am a 1st year student who achieved a 2:1 (unfortunately got a bit excited with Uni lifestyle and missed out on first), I am looking to make it into Investment/Commercial Banking, and want to do as much as possible to boost my CV and knowledge to strengthen my application for my industrial placement year 2023/24. 

If there were any beneficial courses/events or advise you could give me (even if its to kick me up the...) that would be greatly appreciated. 

Cheers, 

Patrick
