Advice on targeting IBs
I’m sure this is a post that users have seen a million times so apologies in advance. Generally speaking, I am just trying to gain a sense of how high/low my expectations should be going into a possible transition to IB.
Like most people, I spent 3 years in audit at a Big 4 followed by a few years in transaction advisory at another large firm working on buy- and sell-side diligence. During this time, I have also been working through the CFA Program. Prior to kickstarting my search, I am also planning to take the Breaking into Wall Street modeling course to gain a bit more knowledge in the day to day of what I would likely be doing in an analyst/associate role.
With that being said, what type of firms would realistically at this stage with a similar background? I am assuming the bulge bracket is out of question, but, with such limited exposure to the recruiting process, I was hoping the analyst community could help level my expectations.
