I have two contacts in BBs that I was hoping to reach out to get an entry level lateral job into an IBD role. One is a VP in a front office division and the other is a head of a back office division. Neither of them are in IBD. Before I formally reach out to them, I was wondering about two things:
1. How likely is it that they would know of/ have any ability to help me out for an IBD position?
2. How interested should I convey myself to be in non-IBD positions, should those be the only opportunities that come up?
I would much rather work in IBD, but if it turns out to truly be too hard to break in, I would take a job in another department as well.
Thanks a lot in advance!!
