Switching SA to FT?

Prospect in S&T - Other

As the title suggests, I'm currently thinking of trying to apply for some FT positions. I will be going to a top (EB,BB) this summer in IB, but I'd like to do S&T or buy side instead. How should I plan on approaching this? I am starting to just renetwork again. Any other suggestions as I'd like to go in as prepared as possible.

For buy side those spots are limited and based on networking your way in. Unless your offer is a top MM/MF buyside I'd stick with IB for the training alone

S&T should be pretty easy coming from BB/EB IB. Network obviously (wait until 4-6 weeks into your internship) but many firms will explicitly offer you the chance to interview with different divisions near the end of the internship.

Sounds good. If I wanted to stay in IB but switch groups, does this usually imply having to interview again?
