Accountant trying to break into IB
I am a CPA and have been working for a tech startup for the last two years. Before this I was an auditor for about 2 years at a national firm, not Big 4. I am starting the Georgetown MSF program this month with the hopes of breaking into investment banking or corporate development. My target would be boutique banks in the DC or NYC area. Do I need a banking internship to secure these kinds of roles or is it more feasible to move directly into a full time analyst role?
