Ways to learn

Hi everyone. I am currently a freshman in college, for many years I have always known that following a path in finance was the one I wanted to take, but within the past few months I have discovered my fascination and passion for I-Banking, specifically. I'm only 18 years old so my knowledge on the I-Banking is limited, so my question is what are some good ways to learn more about I-Banking to improve my understanding of the "ins and outs" of it? Thanks in advance.

1st year AM looking to move to IBD

I am currently working at a large investment bank/asset manager within the AM arm and I know this is an uncommon lateral movement, but, it is not completely without purpose. I have decided, not long after starting, maybe 6 months ago, that really, what I want to do is work in a field where investment banking is the only sure fire way to get there.

With that being said, is there anyone who has gone through this process of shifting from any other career into investment banking? If there are some of you out there on this board, what does the time-line look like, training etc? How did you break in, through HR programs, or contacts?

Can you kindly rip apart my resume?

I thought I had a good resume prior to applying to banks on campus. I did not get any first round interviews and am trying to diagnose why. Good place to start is always the resume, so kindly tear it apart.

NOTE: I keep my high school on my resume because it is a private high school with a large and strong alumni network.

Owning Land in Thailand

Hi, so my family owns near 40 acres of land in Thailand, 1-hour away from Bangkok in a very industrial part of the country known for manufacturing. My question is, should I pursue the standard IB/S&T venture after graduating or just go to Thailand and try to make it work with the land given to me?

Anyone with Southeast Asian exposure want to chime in on this?

Advice for 18-year-old

I'm 18, and I want to get into investment banking, but I'm not sure whether I want to be in IB or trading. Can anybody could give me an enlightening take on those such as exit ops/career path?

Also, I go to a top-10 university and am an econ major, but I want to do something outside of school to really ready myself. What would be a good market for me to study? Or what should I do now to stand out among other candidates in the future?
