1. Does anyone know if Centerview hires MBAs? I am considering IB for my post B-school career and would like to be a lifetime banker. They invest in their employees with that intention, so it makes sense for me to want to work there. I am enrolling in a top 20 school pending my interviews at two top 12 schools. I have no problem networking to get my job, but I looked on the MBA employment reports from the IB juggernauts of the world (Stern, Columbia, Wharton, Booth, Cornell, etc) and none of them mention Centerview in their reports. I know if they hired anyone, it would probably be 1-2 MBAs max from a given school so that might be why Centerview was not mentioned, but I figured someone here would know. I looked at their website and they mention absolutely nothing about hiring associates. It only talks about them grooming analyst for the long-term.
- Also, I have not done IB before, but I was in AM at a boutique but not an elite one. Does anyone have any success stories about landing a pre-MBA IB internship at local shops? I am guessing big shops are out of the question because of formal recruiting processes. If yes, is there any advice you could share about what you/that person did to land that gig? At this point, I'm pretty much checked out of my current work, so I would rather get my butt kicked in banking so I can decent in my future internship and full-time gig. I would rather my current work sooner rather than later - they're trying to get every inch out of me and want me to leave the week before I planned on going to b-school. If I can't land a pre-mba IB, I would much rather travel lol. Thanks and as always you guys are a great help!
