Currently a 1st year Institutional Equities Sales analyst at a BB (started 6 months ago). Have 1 previous boutique banking internship and a credit risk internship at a BB. I have a solid team but I can see the industry rapidly evolving and this business is becoming a dinosaur that'll become extinct sooner than later.
I've read the stories of those who lateraled from a boutique IB role/valuations role after 1 year into IB, but was wondering if anyone had any experience or knew of an individual managing to lateral from S&T to IB after 1 year full-time? I've begun reaching out to alumni & friends in IB expressing my interests & have begun applying online for positions opening up.
Any other steps I should take and when do spots normally start opening up in the course of the year? Appreciate any and all help as this site has been good to me during my undergraduate & professional career.
