Hey all, looking for advice. I recently just finished a finance&accounting rotational development program at a regional/super regional bank and currently work in finance supporting our commercial/corporate banking department. I also just passed level 1 of the CFA. I would love to transition to a credit analyst/corporate banking analyst position and am very open to advice. Would I still be considered for a Commercial/Corporate banking development program at banks?

should be fairly easy since youre only a year into your career. look for credit analyst roles on your internal job board, find out who the hiring manager is, email them and ask for a info session, then apply to the role.
