As an analyst, how early should I expect to get to do modelling?
I started a couple months ago and feels like everyone else (MBA associates, experienced analysts) is asked to do the modelling and I haven't been.
I lightly mentioned they don't need to hesitate to give me modelling pieces so I can learn but haven't touched anything yet.
I also get that with a time crunch, it's easier this way.
I'm worried this is a sign they don't trust me and I never will get to do any modelling/will be let go.

As a 3rd year analyst, completely depends on the group norms. Make sure you’re doing the basic stuff 100% correct and don’t make senior analysts and associates correct basic things (easy powerpoints, comps, etc) because you’ve gotta show you’re somewhat competent. I have first years that I wouldn’t let get close to anything important with a 10 foot pole and I have first years I would trust to do the model over myself. Be the latter

We have been pushing our first years to start picking up the modeling but yes in time crunches we let more experienced ppl handle it.

If you have downtime (I know I know) you should try to copy one.

At minimum you should be helping audit the model your 2nd year analyst or assoc on your deal team is building so that if they hand it over to you you are familiar with it and can easily manipulate it or grab data from it.

There’s a lot of grunt work that is not modeling like creating profiles and pulling data from filings for benchmarking slides.

Hello fellow HR pros! I really need your opinions on HR certifications. I am deciding between PHR and SHRM-cp. I have read just about all there is online comparing the two and can not decide. My heart is telling me PHR, my mother in law (an HRBP) is telling me to go with SHRM, as it’s more widely recognized, more established and a larger network in general. I work for a 350~ company who is growing rapidly through M&A. Passions/interests are compliance, strategic vision, M&A, branding and culture
