Probability of becoming an Associate/Analyst

Hi, I was wondering if you can help me analyze the probability of me becoming an Analyst / Associate in %

- Master in Finance from semi-target. 4.0 GPA with honors (MSF, not MBA)
- 1.5-2 year experience as a Real Estate Asset Management Analyst - Bontique
- CAIA charterholder
- CFA Level 2 passed
- CMT Level 1 passed

1. Probability of becoming an MM/BB Investment Banking Analyst in % after graduation.
2. Probability MM/BB Investment Banking Associate in %
3. Private Equity MM/BB Analyst in %
4. Private Equity MM/BB Associate in %

Let me know what you think. Any advice is also welcome. Thank you.

People ask stupid questions no one knows percentage. Your resume is a hell of a lot better than mine but based on this stupid ass question you may lack social skills

That might have been harsh haha but you have a resume much stronger than mine and I don't know if people here have input about this but it may be tough getting an analyst position with you having your masters.

nah, not harsh. job seeking is not as simple as weighting probabilities. if OP wants banking, go for banking. if OP wants PE, go for PE.

1. network
2. informational interviews
3. real interviews
4. repeat

eventually you'll get an offer somewhere, assuming you do the above right and are way less awkward in person than this post.

I still haven't finished these yet and still pretty new to the forum/industry. Thanks for the advice thebrofessor. Obviously there are many other factors but I just wanted to get some general ideas. This is my first forum post and I will try to be less awkward in the future.
