CorpDev --> IB specific case
Hello, this month for some reasons I moved from Eastern to Western Europe and currently staying here struggling with job search. Before moving I worked for 3yr as CorpDev analyst in medium-sized private energy company (~$5-7 bln EV). I did modelling and slides for all major investment activities within company (greenfield and brownfield O&G projects, greenfield renewables, M&A renewables buy-side deals, O&G PSAs with state-owned company).
From my perspective there are potential 3 paths: 1. Analyst at IB Energy/Infrastructure group; 2. CorpDev with Western Europe energy companies; 3. analyst at PE Energy/Infrastructure. But I'm highly unsure that I'm available to land option 1 or 3 because my study experience from no-name university from Eastern Europe, but still a good GPA (A grade). I believe that in most cases, I'll be rejected at the automated screening stage. Do you think it's possible for me to pursue options 1 or 3, or should I focus on option 2 instead?
This isn't the optimistic answer, but I would focus on option 2 and work there for a few years to gain the necessary experience. Then try to apply back to options 1 and 3, then at that point you won't be eliminated by the initial screening.
Thanks, I would like to clarify if the main purpose of gaining additional experience is to add more years of experience or to gain international exposure?
I forgot to mention that prior to my CorpDev role, I spent one year at a Big4 Cross-border Tax Advisory. However, I do not find this experience relevant to my current goals.
