I am currently looking at moving internally at my current firm and have had no luck through applying on the internal job portal (have not even had the opportunity to speak to anyone).
I am in a risk/finance function and would like to try and lateral internally (willing to drop a corporate grade too) to IB or CB. In my role I don't interact too closely with these groups, but genuinely believe that with experience and personality I would be able to do well in the role.
What would be the best approach at trying to network and get a coffee/chat with people in thesegroups? Is emailing directly the best since I work internally? LinkedIn? Or maybe just stalk the elevator/bathroom on the floor until someone walks in?
If anyone else has any stories of their internal moves, I would like to hear about them!
Appreciate your help fellow monkeys!
