Graduated recently and I wanted to know my chances in IB, if i network and somehow pass the screening, is there a chance?
My main drive to go into IB are the opportunities to build my investment portfolio. Also working with big clients, making a difference etc.
What other roles should i look into that can still help me on this journey?
I've looked into auditing and its not what i want to do. Advisory and consultant roles do seem interesting but i have not given it much thought.
I have been applying but no luck so far, though i have shifted my focus to insight weeks and free voluntary works at smaller places (Finance related) as a potential way to build up my resume.
Here a breakdown of my grades and subjects.
Business studies - C
Economics - D
IT - E
1.1 (BA) Degree Accounting & Finance at mid-low rank university (Average 3.6-4 GPA according to several sources)
Liquidity & Risk management - 75% (1.)
Corporate finance - 61% (2.1)
No relevant banking experience, but i do have part time admin and hospitality experience. 5-7 years.
