Is Being a Non-Target Going To Hurt me When Applying to F500s?Subscribe
So basically, I'm wondering if working in the corporate finance (NOT AT A BANK) for a F500 company is less competitive than investment banking/consulting. After being rejected by every bulge bracket (in just about all of their divisions) and even local boutiques here (btw, I don't even live in New York City, so most of the boutiques in my area are not even that legit...no, I'm not going to tell you where I live), I'm starting to think that me and banking are just not meant to happen and that I need to move on to something else in my life.
corporate finance seems interesting to me, but I'm wondering how much my non-target and lack of outstanding credentials will hurt me here? So while I know it varies from firm to firm, I'm just wondering, in general, how much being a non-target will hurt for corporate finance positions? Can you guys think of any F500 firms that have a decent name (i.e. can get me into a decent MBA like UT-Austin, and the like) that aren't as hung up on things like target vs non-target and I might have a shot at?
