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?
