Corporate Development Recruiting
So I have done research on the corpdev recruiting cycle - It seems like there actually isn't one. From what I have seen it is nothing like PE and jobs just pop up whenever they are available (rather than a certain time of year). Because of this, I have a few questions on how to make my way into the industry. Before, some background on me is I work at a BB in IB but in a non M&A/LevFin product group (its a group unique to the bank). Its actually a very strategy focused group, so hopefully the variety of projects will help differentiate me.
1 - how to get an interview? It seems like asking my MD to refer me or just applying online is the best way. Is that true?
2 - Anything to know for interviews except IB stuff? Like any strategy components?
3 - If anyone has any general advice you wish you knew at the beginning of the process, please feel free to reply.
