8 mths (until July but possible to leave if a permanent is found) London German Bank DCM Syndicate
After my first experience at Amundi I was afraid of being stuck in RE and I was dreaming of IB as nobody from my school managed to find FO positions in bank but after less than 1y I really want to leave, I cannot stand banking anymore and especially the market dimension of the job. Would be glad to explain why but I don't want to be boring ahah!
1) Do you think that it is possible to find a permanent position in RE in London ? I'm targeting REPE even in a small fund.
I spoke with 2 HR on LinkedIn, one told me let's set up a call a lot of my clients will be interested and the other one told me forget RE you don't have RE degree .......
2) Is it too early to seek for a position ideally starting in September?
Thanks a lot for your returns guys!
