Q&A - I'm a Non-target who broke into MM IB with no prior experience
11/30/17 update: This was originally posted in 2014 but I am still able to take questions As some of you know, I'm about to begin by MM IB analyst stint in a week. I've been blogging for WSO for a fair bit of time now and I thought it would be good to use some of my experiences to help others. I went over my story in detail here but below is a quick overview:
- Non-finance major
- No prior finance or IB experience
- 4 year, D1 Tennis Athlete
- 3.7 GPA, 700 GMAT and a couple honors societies
- Prior International living experience
I'm willing to answer questions on networking, cold emailing, resources I used to break in, interviews, crafting your story, any clarifications on my story, tennis, and anything else that people think I can answer as long as I deem it not to expose my whole identity. Fire away! I'll try to answer the questions as quickly and honestly as I can. Feel free to PM if it's a question you're not comfortable sharing with the rest of the community.
