How hard is it to make it into capital markets from a non-target?
How hard is it to make it into capital markets? Id assume that the majority of undergrad students are gunning for M&A, but for those of us that would like to be career bankers, is it easier to get into equity/? How much easier would it be for a non-target to get a job in capital markets at , , , SMBC, Santander, or to M&A? I have been looking at the linkedin's of many analysts from top MM firms, and there seem to be WAY more non-target people in capital markets compared to M&A. I just want to know your personal experiences. I really am interested by Equity and Debt capital markets, and I will most likely be attending a higher end non-target/lowest tier semi target for undergrad. The fact that they pay is nice and the hours are doable, capital markets seems like the way to go for people who want long term careers in banking.
