WSO,

I have been in Equity Research in NYC at a Middle Market Firm for 4 years and my career interests are more aligned with investment banking with the hopes of one day moving into corporate development or staying in IB long term. Given my sellside ER experience I do not have deal experience which seems to be tough for me to overcome. How should I go about marketing and positioning myself in order to land an Investment Banking Associate role? I have strong sector knowledge so I feel my efforts are best aligned with Investment Banking Coverage Teams.
