Big 5 Bank in Toronto to BB in NYC (2nd Year IB Analyst) (H1B & Job Offers)Subscribe
Hey guys, I need some advice regarding transitioning from Toronto to NYC. I'm a second year IB (DCM) analyst at a big 5 bank in Canada. I'd like to move to a BB or EB in NYC, mainly due to family reasons and visa sponsorship. Please note that I will be applying under the H1B program.
How does recruitment work? A couple of my buddies from college ended up in BB in NYC from school. I know it's possible for entry level programs. Since H1B requires applying one year in advance, does any BBs or EBs sponsor lateral candidates?
Not sure how much networking helps or if I should just apply online. I believe the eligibility to work in the US won't even send my application to the hiring managers. I have a diverse background and experience. I have also had some good deal flows.
Did headhunters help you? A couple of them reached out to me but I haven't had any discussions yet.
I am mainly looking to lateral to another bank and not interested in buyside roles. If there are any Canadians that moved recently, I'd really appreciate if you could share your story.
