Thanks. Just PM your name mate and when I apply, I will put your name down for recommending me to the site.
Thank sox, on the IBtalk site now.
I don't know anyone in IB so I'm screwed on that count. I dont fit the in the bracket youve mentioned either.
I definitely know its difficult to get into but its something I want to do and feel I have the potential for perform wicked in.
Dont mind long hours in all honesty, thats a minor. Been looking at Wealth Management and being doing some self study in the 4 main areas (Equities, Derivatives, Fixed Income and FX) so I have a bare minimum knowldge of those areas (least its something to talk about in an interview).
Thanks for posting up lads, keep talking.
Any more sites, any other literature, agenices etc, keep them coming.
Hudson, Michael Page etc. are the usual big recruitment agencies..
What did you read at university?
IB is far and diverse, what area do you want to get into? Structured products is a world away from M&A.
I read a mix of topics but I would say that all the business modules I covered, can be related to the job such as Databases, Maths and Stats, Corporate Strategy, Accounting and others.
I would like to get into Wealth Management but will obviously need to do other roles before I get that and Im fine with it. Most, if not all positions for new entrants into the industry will be at an analyst or clerk level in operations so Im pretty much stuck to that but its ok.
If I dont get anything by the end of next month, Ill just have to spend an extra year in retail banking (argh) and hopefully whoever employs me, will pay from some extra studies. Then after a year, I would have a years experience, extra professional qualification and will re-apply into IB or a grad scheme.
The grad schemes are quality though. A girl in my class got a 1st in sports and business and was accepted onto the Loyds grad scheme. Starting salary of 30k, 5k hello bonus, free laptop and phone, discount on mortgages and an extra 5k for training purposes should she wish to study at the same time.
HOW COOL IS THAT?!
