I was just wondering if any of you previous analysts/associates had any insight into how I-Banks look at resumes. I had always thought that HR would look at resumes, but after doing some research online, it looks as if analysts are the ones that do the first round screening. This came as a big surprise to me.
Is it true that only alumni from your school at whatever bank you're applying for will look at your resume for the first round? How true is this?
Also, Is it the same process amongst different divisions, such as I-Banks, AM, Ops, Trading, Risk? I read a article on mergers and inquisitions, and when they said that analysts rather than HR look at your resumes, they were specifically referring.
