I am having ainterview with , and the position is credit risk .
I am kind of confused about the job repsonbilitis for this job. Though I understand the job responsibilities of a credit analyst in a commercial bank include looking at an institution or person's financial history and credit history to determine whether the bank can lend him the loan, I am not sure about whether it's the same for the investment bank.
Also, do you by any chance know the potential exit opportunities for this position? How hard is it for a credit analyst to break into IB or PE?
