Any of y’all moved from consulting to IB (M&A - probably analyst level) and have any advice? Is it mainly networking, deal experience or playing the numbers game?

It’s all networking, knowing banking and modeling. I’ve only been through the interview process a few times (offer on two of three) and ultimately after long deliberation decided to stay where I am at, but options are there if you have the skills (soft skills, finance, modeling, and, accounting).

I have done both and Consulting and IB. To be honest most people in banking don’t fully get how consultants come into play aside from a QoE. IB tends to support the sell side and if you are doing diligence or M&A strategy it’s on behalf of the buy side. My advice is to study technicals, network, and explain things like you background in professional services would be a great fit and even though it’s not a perfect match you are a fast learner who knows what the role entails and you are ready. Best of luck!

All networking. Everything else u can prep

What kind of consulting roles makes you eligible for the move to IB?

Valuation and FDD most transferrable, but anything within transaction space helps
