how to get into investment banking from other (telecom)domain?
Back to Career Advice forum
i am IT consultant working in UK in telecoms. I work for various
operators as a contractor from past 3 years in wireless services .I
have been seeing the market for telecom recently and it is not shining,
getting a new contract has become so difficult and the daily rates have
decreased. the perm jobs also dont offer good pay to attract me.
recently i have been looking at the investment jobs in UK. these are
jobs which attract me. i think it is worth to be a contractor in
banking due to the pay which is like double than the telecoms. i can
see many jobs which match my tehcnical skills, i am good at UNIX and
SQL skills. i can shine my skills on UNIX and SQL if required, i have
already done my UNIX Sun Solaris administration recently to get into
banking but all in vain. many recuiters are asking for banking
experience as well.so could any one give me suggestion how to break
into finance from other domain? are there any agencies which can help
me certify and put forward my profile to break into finance?
the applications which i worked in telecom are similar to the one in
finance. the services which i worked have a database involved, and UNIX
operating system , following company procedures., worked on support ,
implementation and testing. i have 8 years of experience all together
in telecoms in various roles and i am keen to shift to banking.
