Equity research lateral career advice

I am working as a valuation analyst and am trying to finish my CFA. I am also learning VBA, and python as add on skills. Am I well positioned for Equity Research lateral opportunities with BB investment banks? What should be my strategy for ER recruiting? 
 

I am an international student from a non target and couldn't break into ER directly out of college. 
 

Any help on this will be super helpful !!
