Hello Monkeys, this is my first time posting on this forum, however, I have been lurking for quite some time! I am almost 3 years out of college and have been working in a Treasury group for a Fortune 500 Healthcare company - I have, up until recently, been working in the Capital Markets/Foreign Exchange back office team.
As with many Healthcare firms, there is a lot of M&A activity and my present role is very much involved in a multi-billion dollar deal. I have had the chance to participate in many of the activities required on the back-end to prepare the company for the transaction. In addition to those activities, I have had the chance to sit in on meetings with our banking partners. Long story short, I would like to see myself on the opposite side of the table.
I have researched and browsed many different forums related to banking and am fully aware and prepared for the lifestyle differences. Likewise, I also realize that I am fighting an uphill battle given my background (it is a battle that I very much want to win).
Steps I have taken so far: Completed WSP Accounting/Financial Modeling Courses, networked with internal Business Development, working through IB Rosenbaum & Pearl book, and trying to leverage my network for opportunities.
At the end of the day, I realize that a forum like this may have people from all walks of life. Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions for someone like me who is trying to make that transition?
I have also included my resume for people to tear apart in the event you are interested!
TL&DR: Corporate Finance (Treasury) --> IB. Best ways to transition? Thoughts? Experience? Here is my resume!
