Hey guys, so I know an MD that is in Corporate Principle and Trading and have a phone call coming up with him. Just wondering how much pull someone like this has if I wanted to get into say IBD or Capital Markets over Sales and Trading.

Would he be able to get me an interview or since he is in a different area he has no pull?

    Depends on firms. If it's GS and the MD is a PMD - you'll get inerviewed.

    If he's a junior MD in some sht group - probably not

    It all depends on how willing he is to help you.

    I would agree with what has been said. My father is an MD in PE at a major investment bank and I recently had a friend interview for an Ibanking position at the same bank. My dad met with my friend so he could determine how much to stick his neck out for him. In other words, if the MD wants to push, he can probably pull an interview but if he just sends a quick email it may not be as powerful.

    probably hurts more than it helps - it makes them think you are spoiled and you get blacklisted.
