I'm a junior at a non-target. I have 4 finance internships (have interned somewhere every semester I have been in school). This past summer I was at a top ER firm in a top team in NYC. Got the offer to go back but not for me.
A few questions about Sankaty Advisors, now known as Bain Capital Credit:
Anyone Have In-depth Knowledge of Bain Capital Credit Jobs?
Interviews (see WSO company database interview feedback for Bain in the image on the right) with Bain Capital Credit represents a unique opportunity because candidates needs to be comfortable with both case interviews as well as:
- Leveraged finance
- Distressed debt
- Senior secured loans
- Capital structures
- Leverage ratios
- Credit quality
Does Bain Capital Credit Only Recruit from Ivies?
Yes Wall Street in general is Ivy-oriented, but there are non-targets at all your BBs. When I search Sankaty on LinkedIn, I find one guy from Notre Dame-everyone else is Ivy for Bachelors or rebranded via a Masters. I only have one contact (analyst) at Sankaty (non alum). He's given my resume to HR but not sure if that 100% qualifies me for guaranteed first round. If I get the interview, I'll work my butt off and do my best to kill it, but am I wasting my time?
Elites give you the best bet, but there are employees from Notre Dame and Ross who work for the firm.
What's the Best Way to Prep for Case Interviews?
In addition to brushing up on your distressed debt technicals, make sure you're also well versed in the case interview format.
