Undergrad to 5 years in Big 4 taxation (CPA/MBA), I then pivoted to a major commercial bank DCM for 6+ years (Series 7/63). Taking some years out of the industry, I later returned to finance via internship as a TMT Credit Analyst at a major credit rating agency, and again pivoted, to MM IB (Series 79). Call me the Pivot Queen, it took patience and determination, but I hit my goal. NYU BS Accounting and MBA Finance, both through academic scholarship programs.
Happy to answer questions about how to set goals and prepare for your pivot, market your current career skills to a new space in finance, discover and develop the skills you may need, timing, networking, MBA, certifications.
I'm a WSO Senior Mentor and Resume Reviewer, and have hired, onboarded, trained, mentored and led interns and Analysts. I really enjoy helping students and junior professionals navigate their careers.
