Not Getting the Experience I Thought I Would...What Should I Do???IB
So I joined a MM bank outside of NYC (CHI) as a analyst and got placed in a group I have no interest in (FIG) and no I cannot transfer groups.....I've been here since graduation in May and have yet to touch a model. I've spent the vast majority of my time doing BULLSHIT formatting and clerical things....so far the deals I have been apart of have been small equity raises....I did this because I thought I would learn a shit ton, and be able to use my skills to get a job at a media company (very interested in this field) or maybe even start my own business. As of now I feel like I am wasting my time! So I ask you guys this, with my free time (i have weekends mostly off), would it be beneficial at all to do one of those /biws courses to get some sort of modeling experience (I have absolutely 0 modeling experience) and possibly lateral to another group/bank???? Or should I just leave this bank and forgo the banking experience and try to get a job at an actual media/internet company? I'm trying to salvage what I can of this experience. Appreciate any advice.
