Pick Apart My IB Resume Like a Hostile Takeover - No Mercy

Hey everyone,

I’m heading into my second year at a non-target as a Finance/Math major in Canada. I'm aiming for an off-cycle IB role for this fall or winter term. I'm trying to make sure my resume is solid as possible before I go out and absolutely go ham on networking and crank out practice models and technicals.

Any slight visual ick, any formatting preferences, any feedback at all would be amazing. Any advice on how to go forward or what you would do in my situation would also be great and very much appreciated

Impressive experience if true…

Maybe add the word “incoming” to the top role just to be clear and it also sounds good


Yeah so long story but switched programs and got set back to first year sequence (grad 27), but credits for a math major- Hoping that having more experience will give me a better chance in recruiting- will put that in thank you!

 

You give away who canadian bank 2 is in the bullet points, just fyi if you’re really that worried about company anonymity

Yeah I realized that after posting lmao- I already mentioned the company in my post history so it’s fine, thanks for the heads up though

 

Looks like a strong resume, although take that with a grain of salt since I’m still trying to break in in Canada too… albeit with a less impressive resume.

I’d say just make sure to have a strong story of what led you to want to do IB since you did PE then trading and IB is probably more similar to the former.
