HOW ABOUT A CORP / COMMERCIAL BANKING FORUM?

While I am sure everybody is fascinated with IB/PE/HF, etc that uses this site, not all of us will be lucky to get there.

Based on some messages I have received, a lot of people are curious about Corp/Commercial Banking. I've searched google and there is not a ton of info out there like there is on IB.

Would it make sense to keep those discussions in the "Other Careers" section or to start a new forum? My guess is the forum would see a lot of activity.

Just my 2 pennies.

I like this idea, nobody likes to admit it but we've all dropped our resume on OCR for commercial/corporate banking spots as a backup to IB

Never did that. I didn't even know banks did OCR for commercial banking.

I'm also interested in commercial banking / corporate banking and pay / hours / exit opportunities (if any).

How much does it lag behind IB and asset management in terms of pay (guessing that entry level is not so bad and not so crash hot as the top).

Any input from the moderators?

Also interested in this as well. More so on the corporate banking aspect.

Side note, I'm not certain if this warrants an entire forum. However, I think a thread similar to harvardgrad or STorIB's corporate development thread would be beneficial (at least IMO).

Mr. Reagan - if you do a search on this site about Corp/Commercial Banking you will see hunders of scattered posts in no single forum. I believe with all the posts and information on this site in scattered areas it warrants an entire forum.
