hi,

I am fresh graduate (MSc. Accounting & Financial Management) from Business School - University of Hertfordshire. I am home studing IMC & also looking forward for CFA in future.

I am very passionate to have a career in Investment Bank or Asset Management Firm. I am ready to give whatever it takes me to be a part of CITY.

I am therefore inviting all CITY (Investment Banking/Asset Management) Professionals to please advice me about their experiences, how you secure job, cv / interview advices etc etc. I will really appreciate your kindness & friendly replies & help.

Hi faisal_siddiqi, you've attended a very good university which is well-known in the City - you've reached the first stage. As you say you need to focus on improving your chances further. You don't mention what you are looking to do in the bank (i.e. job)? Try www.ibadvice.com and go to the Overview of an investment bank. It'll be easier to work out a stratergy once you know exactly - I assume it's front office?

Hi

The academic credentials are great but in this climate experience counts! There are a lot of professionals with qualifications and experience - books and qualifications can never prepare you for the banking world.

Hard to give too much advice because you have not stated whether you are looking for a FO, MO or BO role. But based on what you have said I would start looking to gain some experience by applying directly for internships. In this climate, banks are less willing to employ poeple with little o no experience when there is a ide pool of candidates with both. I know a few people who have stuggled to get in when I graduated back in 2007 and transferable skills was the stumbling block. If you have no luck with the banks, think about alternative professional fields where you can build up some transferable skills (accountancy is a popular choice for example). Good luck

You're in a position like many others, excellent degree and wants to get into banking etc. Theres a lot of advice out there but you need advice that is bespoke to your skills and desired career path. A mentor is a good start, do you know anyone in banking that can take you under their wing? Or checkout wiseround.com, you can get a mentor there (someone from the industry), they could help open up doors for you.
