Corporate Banking recruiting?
Figured I'd put it on this forum since its more similar to IB than any of the other ones. So I'm a sophomore right now and I'm gonna recruit for IB SA roles this spring but I'm also strongly considering corporate banking as well. I have a general idea of what the job actually involves but I can't seem to find a whole lot of information on recruiting. First off, this might sound dumb but what are the actual job titles in CB? A search of "corporate banking analyst" on LinkedIn returns very few results from my school (a large public semi-target) which struck me as kind of odd because I've had no problem finding literally hundreds of alumni in IB to reach out to but I can't seem to find anyone in CB.
A few more questions:
What does the timeline for recruiting look like? It it similar to IB (2nd semester sophomore year)?
Are these roles MORE or LESS networking-dependent than IB? Do banks tend to have established, large analyst classes each year for these roles or is it less structured?
If anyone here has experience in corporate banking, I'd love to have some light shed on the whole process and any other differences between IB that I should know about.
