I have a great question for experienced Equity Researchers...
I live in Chicago, but I'm open for relocation.
I am originally (B.Sc.) from molecular biology and genetics,
I have done my M.Sc. in molecular genetics of human cancer,
I have finished my Ph.D. in biochemistry in 2011.
This fall started an online M.B.A. online program after deciding to shift to equity research (wanted to get out of lab and the slow pace of academia - have always had a passion for business side of science and really enjoyed finance) and being rejected due to lack of experience(?).
I'm learning a lot in the M.B.A., but I want to make sure, I head to right direction. Therefore, wanted to request any advise from experienced.
- what is the appropriate title/level should I apply for? Before/after MBA?
- would you recommend an internship before applying to positions?
- any key places to look for internships?
- any good places that may overlook the non-existence of experience?
Thanks for all the answers!
