After spending 7 year as an Auditor (at a Big4), I have decided to pivot into IB. I have read a lot about how people made this switch and noticed that I am really late in the game (i,e I should have made the switch long ago). I need three pieces of advice:
1 when applying do I make audit experience crystal clear or i try to tweak to things that are related to what an analyst might do e.g. FS analysis and review of models etc
2 aside starting the CFA exams, what other steps can I take to make my plans a reality
- Are there firms (BB,MM or Boutique) that are more open to Intn'l graduate students
I'm doing a 2 year Masters at UC Berkeley (1 year finished) and I am writing CFA 1 this Dec. I am an international student
I would appreciate your candid opinion and words of wisdom
