I have an interview in a few days for a position as an equity research associate with and O&G investment bank in Texas. I have spent the last 2.5 years in investment banking, but out of the blue this firm reached out to me, and now here we are.
I am familiar with investment banking, but I am not quite sure what research guys do other than research. What are some key items that equity research associates look for in projects? What are some key financials used in determining things? I am really drawing a blank as to what (other than my modeling and due diligence skills) will translate over to this job.
Any advice? Thanks!
