Q&A: Back Office > Middle Office > Front Office
After countless ups & downs, interviews, mobility attempts, "catch ups", etc., I've finally made it (back) to the Front Office at an amazing firm in an amazing space.
I graduated from a semi-target (texas target), joined a small RIA as the only employee, and was let go about 6 months into the job as the PM was a serial "firer". I took the first job I could find as a back office processing employee at a data vendor, got hired into a middle office role at a BB and found success, and finally was just offered a role in the front office.
There's been times where I've thought about giving up and staying in operations, going to business school, or leaving finance altogether but persevered and pushed through it. I'm writing to you all now to help answer any questions about my incredibly unconventional journey to IB and would like to help others that are in the position I was in make it across the line. Fire away!
