I recently started a position as a financial analyst at a top aerospace and defense company. Most of my work is mainly reporting and some basic projections but I am getting pulled into some more exciting projects soon involving deals and modeling. My question is, what are the best ways to leverage this role to break into more traditional financial services roles in the future ()? My company has a great they offer tuition reimbursement and allows for a rotation to work in different areas such as treasury, VC and M&A, and I am wondering if this is the most direct path to IB or if I can break in without it, and if there are any or general advice about breaking in I should know about. The FLDP is competitive and by no means a guarantee, so I appreciate any insight on alternative pathways as well. Also, are there any BBs or EBs that have a strong pedigree of defense contractors within their industrials coverage teams? Thanks!
