Start Working on Your Resume Early

Investment Banks love all rounders because an Investment Banker is not just a quant jock. She has to balance financial knowledge with analysis as well as client management skills. He has to have a background in working in a team. They like leaders. So make sure you are part of special projects in college and take part in significant team activities. It is also better to focus on excelling in one area, like case study competitions or football, rather than being a jack of all trades. Investment Banks want to see consistent academic performance as well as commitment to an outside activity as it shows them persistence and staying power.

Look for an Internship

An internship is a great way to get a foot in the door even if it is for an extremely short time or the promise of hours of photocopying. It will give you that all-important insight into how a bank functions.Investment Banking Banner
