Want to Ace Your Interview? Crack the Code...First You Have to
Investment banking is one of the most sought after jobs on Wall Street. You know it. I know it. Everyone knows it.
Not only does it promise huge salaries and bonuses, but it’s also the key stepping stone to anywhere you want to go in your career... Private Equity, Hedge Funds or higher up the ladder in IB.
But getting in the door is much harder than you think...
... because Wall Street guards its secrets like the Federal Reserve guards its gold.
Getting an Investment Banking job is not about acquiring the skills to DO the job... It’s about acquiring the skills to GET the job.
And these are NOT the same thing.
Because what most Wall Streeters will never tell you is that everything you’ve learned so far is practically useless when it comes to interviewing...
- Technical knowledge alone won’t cut it...
- A high GPA isn’t enough...
- Great connections won’t get you the job you want...
- And even those with highly coveted internships don’t make the cut...
Your interviewer’s job isn’t to find the best candidates... It’s to weed out the worst. They’ll stress test you, confuse you and will do everything they can to crack you.
- They’ll evaluate your technical acumen...
- Hit you with complex brain teasers designed to trick you...
- Test your knowledge of the industry and their bank...
- And they’ll tax your ability to function under pressure and think on your feet...
They’ll probe everything about you:
- Your body language and voice tone...
- Assess your character...
- Judge your presentation skills and presence in front of clients and colleagues...
- Your ability to both lead and follow...
- And they’ll decide if you’re high status enough to make it at their bank...
Quite simply, the Investment Banking Interview process is a gauntlet that will eat you alive if you don’t know how to navigate it.
The Only Way to Crack This Code is to Learn It from Those Who Have Walked Your Path Before.
The best way to learn anything is to simply follow in the footsteps of those who have done it successfully. And not just a few people, but thousands of interviewers, analysts and investment banking veterans who have successfully navigated this process and have gone on to lucrative careers across Wall Street.
Only then will you know all of the little tricks, secrets and shortcuts to acing your interview and beating your competition: the tens of thousands of other finance “rock stars” who are competing for your job.
And once you have this knowledge, what seemed like a gauntlet will be a walk in the park.
Where others are confused and intimidated, you’ll be calm, cool and collected.
When others are cramming at the last minute, you’ll be totally prepared for anything they can throw at you.
And when others are working in the back office at a community bank, you’ll b e climbing the ladder at an investment bank.
But first, a word of warning...
FACT:Less Than 2% of Applicants Get an IB Job...
... Only Those with an EDGE Get In.
That’s right. Out of every 1,000 applicants, less than 20 will get the job. The other 98% will wash out and never be heard from again.
That’s 3x lower than the acceptance rate at Harvard. You do the math.
Think it can’t be you? Think again. Wall Street has access to thousands of rocket scientists, technical geniuses and finance “rock stars”, all just like you... all beating down their door.
Most never get in.
Instead they end up left out in the cold, wandering the finance wilderness... Working in a back office...
Selling home loans at a community bank... Crunching numbers as an accountant...
And yes, living with their parents.
I’ve seen it more times than I can count.
And it’s all because they’re unprepared.
- Many relied on their technical abilities but didn’t have the network or the behavioral skills to make it through...
- Others had great pedigrees and connections but couldn’t solve the tricky brainteasers and complex finance problems that come up in every interview...
- Some even had 4.0’s from the most prestigious target schools in the country but found themselves forever looking in from the outside.
One of my best friends was a finance savant, with a 3.9 from a target school. But he failed the interview process, and now he sells mortgages at a local bank. He’ll never be an investment banker, and he’ll live with the pain of regret for the rest of his life, wondering what if...
The Bottom Line is This:
To Get the Job, You Must Know Everything...
... And That Means Going to the One Place That Has Everything.
The Wall Street OasisInvestment Banking Interview Prep Course
The Insider’s Guide on How to Land One of theMost Prestigious Jobs on Wall Street...
Here’s Just Some of What You’ll Get in version 6.0:
Our customers have landed positions at every major investment bank, including:
don’t let one missed question cost you $150,000 ...get the course that will prepare you better than anything else.
The WSO Investment Banking Interview Prep Course 6.0 takes you way beyond anything else. While others claim to give you everything you need, the truth is they only cover a few hundred questions. Even worse, they’re written by one guy who’s been out of investment banking for years…
Hardly what we’d call “comprehensive”...
And there’s an even BIGGER problem with this approach:
It’s totally outdated.
Investment Banking is constantly changing. What worked even last year is no longer effective. Your interviewers are smart… and they’re constantly changing their questions and tactics for one reason: to put you under stress and see what you’re made of.
That’s why the WSO course is crowdsourced from thousands of currently practicing Investment Bankers… people who live and breathe this industry - day in and day out… who can tell you what’s changing firsthand… and will keep you up-to-date on everything you need to ace the interview process and land that job.
And what you really need is this:
How do I know this?
Because I’ve been down this path before...
My name is Patrick Curtis, and I’m the founder of Wall Street Oasis. Not that long ago, I was in your position. I had a stellar GPA from a prestigious school, was a top athlete and held strong leadership positions. In short, I was confident, flying high and ready to ace my interviews…
Except I didn’t.
During my first interview, I found out the harsh truth… I was blindsided by a completely unexpected question. I had no idea what to do, so naturally I tried to B.S.
But my interviewer saw right through it.
I knew I was screwed… and I had nowhere to hide. Instead, I had to sit there, sweating through my suit, red-faced and humiliated, while he dragged me through the ringer.
This same scenario repeated again and again… And this doesn’t include the hundreds of times I got hung up on, blown off or outright rejected.
While my friends were landing great banking jobs with huge salaries, I was one step away from the ultimate indignity: selling mortgages at a community bank and moving back in with my parents.
(In fact, one of my friends graduated from the top his class at Georgetown, but failed the interview process and ended up selling Carnival Cruise packages to Midwestern tourists. I’m serious.)
After months of failure, I finally decided to suck it up and take a hard look in the mirror. I realized I was totally out of my element and needed help. I went back and analyzed each one of my failures and reconstructed everything I’d done wrong.
And then I got a mentor… An alum to take me under his wing and show me the ropes.
Finally, after 130 hours of additional work over 6 weeks, I had one last opportunity… the last round of interviews…
The work paid off. I landed just 1 of 12 coveted spots at Rothschild’s New York office.
After 2 years, I moved into private equity, doubled my salary and was finally living the high life.
This course is the result of that experience. With the help of our 430,000 members, we’ve created the only crowdsourced Investment Banking Interview Prep Course on the market. I know firsthand how hard it is to break into IB… and I also know what happens if you miss your window.
And with the help of our members - and of the thousands of industry veterans, analysts and interviewers who have contributed to this guide - it’s my hope that you can avoid the pitfalls I experienced, land the job you want and catapult yourself to the lucrative career that’s waiting for you.
here’s what you’re going to get:
Module 1Technical question mastery
Technical questions are a critical part of every finance interview… You WILL be quizzed on these questions – and your interviewers expect detailed and accurate responses. In this 110-page PDF is the most comprehensive guide on the market… We’ve got every base covered, so you’ll be prepared no matter what your interviewers throw at you.
Module 2behavioral question mastery
Technical questions are only half the equation... Most candidates ignore the crucial behavioral part that help your interviewers answer one critical question: “Are you a fit for our bank?” But… this isn’t something can you fake. You have to demonstrate it - by your body language, tone of voice, attitude and the way you frame your own story to make them believe you’re the perfect fit for their firm. The Behavioral Fit Guide shows you exactly how to master this part of your interview.
Module 3networking mastery
Want to get the job? First you have to get in the door. But without a great network, nobody will know who you are. Even if your resume is great, it will end up lost in the pile of wannabe’s, and your chances of landing even an informational interview will be almost zero. In this 71-page guide, we’ll reveal everything we know about the fine art of networking… so you can meet the people who can get you what you want most: the job.
Don’t take our word for it
Here are just a few of the 20,000 candidates who have taken this course...
“Without a doubt, the WSO IB Interview Course 100% helped me. I bought it a few days before my interview and used it to cram. A few of the questions I was asked were directly lifted from the course guides...as a result of prepping with the packet, I got the job in [BBs] corporate banking energy team in Houston. Our team maintains the relationship with the clients and provides bank debt instruments such as RCFs, term loans, bridge loans, etc.”
Result: Analyst @ BB in Houston
“Both of the fit and technical modules of the course were incredible. The fit portion was especially helpful for understanding what the job precisely entails and how the industry works. I was then able to clearly evaluate my own experiences and make the appropriate connections so that I could highlight the skills I could contribute. The technical module was also great since I hadn't taken any finance courses prior to recruiting, so it helped me focus on the more important aspects to have a better understanding.”
Result: Internship @ Macquarie Group in New York
“This course helped me so much! All of the modules were great, but what I found most valuable was the firm-specific advice! In terms of results, I'm now a first year IB analyst in London!”
Result: Analyst @ Elite Boutique Investment Bank in London
The WSO guides were extremely helpful. The technical guide covered all interview questions I was asked essentially and the behavioral guide is what made the difference and set me apart from other candidates.
Result: Summer Analyst @ Wells Fargo in North Carolina.
I would say the technical section and dummy models were the most helpful sections. I am very happy because I managed to get an internship at Barclays, London sitting in [industry group] M&A which converted to a full time offer starting in Feb 2017!
Result: Summer Analyst @ Barclays in London
The WSO IB Interview Pack helped immensely in my recruiting / interview prep. It was one of the main reasons I got in. It helped me a lot with the confidence aspect. Confidence in that I know what the job entails, what questions would be asked etc.
Result: Analyst @ Investment Bank M&A in South Africa
This was my main study guide and I landed the exact job I wanted, so obviously it was a great investment. The packet was excellent in helping me understand balance sheets, all that technical stuff. I went through 2 months of training afterwards at [BB bank] so I understand the packet even better (almost 100% now)...ha! More specifically, I got a job in Credit Risk covering Hedge Fund clients at JP Morgan.
Result: Credit Risk Analyst @ JP Morgan in New York

Consider this your first investmentin a long career...
After all, you’ve likely already spent tens of thousands of dollars on college (and perhaps tens of thousands more on an MBA)... When you land your coveted Investment Banking job,
you’ll be making well over $100,000...
...over $300,000 if you have an MBA...
And that’s just the beginning of a long and very LUCRATIVE career that could easily net you millions.
We could easily charge thousands of dollars and your ROI would still be huge…
At a fraction of that price, the ROI is even better... a few hundred in exchange for millions of dollars down the line. When you do the math, it’s a no brainer.
And that doesn’t include the time you’d have to spend figuring all of this out. Even if you used the volumes of free information inside the WSO forum, you’d still have to find it, organize it, vet it, test it and systematize it to get it to work.
That would take months - maybe even years… and at that point, you will have missed your window, blown your opportunity and your chances of ever getting a job in IB will be slim to none.
All while watching your friends and classmates ride the elevators to the penthouses of investment banking, private equity and hedge funds…
The WSO Investment Banking Interview Prep Course gives you everything you need to nail your interviews, crush your competition and land the prestigious IB job you’ve always wanted… quickly and easily.
But we’re not going to charge you thousands...
We won’t even ask for half of that..

Your Choice is Simple.
If you’re reading this, you’re here for a reason: because you want to be one of the very few who gets an Investment Banking job… and because you need help doing it.
Your opportunity really is limited… you have one good shot. If you don’t land an IB job, your chances of breaking into the industry are slim to none, because the banks will know you’re damaged goods. Don’t believe me? Talk to my friend who was selling Carnival Cruise packages after he failed his interviews.
Because the hard truth is that Wall Street is literally flooded with millions of people just like you and me: college hot shots, finance wizards, math geniuses and even IB interns with actual deal experience… and most of them still end up on the outside looking in.
The banks have the pick of the litter, and only those who are superbly prepared, who have mastered all the concepts and who understand the subtle nuances of interviewing will get the job.
Do that, and you’ll gain entrance to a world few people will ever glimpse.
What do you want to be doing? Living in a penthouse, working on multibillion dollar deals and climbing the elite ladders of finance?
Or living with your parents, selling mortgages in the suburbs and watching your friends having the lucrative career that should have been yours.
The choice really is yours. And your opportunity really is limited.
Don’t waste it. Click here to get instant access and get started on your career as an investment banker.

Result: 1st Year Analyst, Goldman Sachs, Sales and Trading
“The WSO package was very helpful preparing for interviews. All of the questions that were asked were covered in the materials.

I even then used the prep material to subsequently secure a job at a VC/PE firm where I am currently at.”
Result: Senior Analyst @ Investment Bank in Chicago

Result: Analyst @ BB IB in UAE
“The WSO IB prep pack was far and away the most helpful resource relative to the other packs available out there. The questions and answers were well thought out and prepared me for a much broader range of questions than the others. Can't say I was over prepared, but it sure felt like it!
Also, the results were great. I landed offers from both BBs and boutiques. Obviously accepted the offer from my top choice.”
Associate @ Investment Bank in Houston
“What I loved about the Prep Pack was that it taught me how to tackle many different types of interview questions, not only IB questions. Thanks to it, I got multiple internship offers. I got 2 offers at investment banks. 2 offers from the Big 4 (in the corporate finance department). Also one offer at a asset management firm and a financial consulting firm and from a MBB firm. I also landed one additional final round interview at another Investment Bank.”
Result: Multiple Offers from IB’s

But your window of opportunity really is limited. If you fail to land an IB job, banks will know your damaged goods and they won’t touch you with a ten-foot pole. It really is make or break time - not just for this job, but quite possibly, for your entire career and maybe even your life.
I’m not exaggerating...
