Coming from PA, which type of role/service would stand out when applying at an investment bank?

I think both would be sufficient

To a BB or MM investment bank, nothing would stand out. If your question is what would give you a chance, the answer is valuations, FDD, or corporate finance (chances from here are highest). Boutique IB is more doable from the three PA groups previously mentioned.

Huh?

Appreciate all the response, currently in a TAS/Valuation role. Looking into going MM based on a referral from an associate from the firm. Trying to see if it’s realistic

Thanks, I really appreciate the insight. Been doing a bunch of interview prep if the time ever comes

Hello! I see a ton of questions in here about interviewing and getting hired as a PM. I also know that it’s really hard as a manager to hire a great team. I’m the head of product at a growing startup, and just hired two PMs in 3 months. One a career switcher who’d never been a PM before, and one a seasoned principal PM. Whether you are someone who’s interviewing or someone who’s hiring right now, ask me anything!

Does two years interning and a masters degree warrant skipping a junior planner position as asking for mid? I have held two interns positions that have each lasted a year (wasn’t able to take on full time because of graduate school). But now that I have a degree and two years of experience (I was acting as a junior in both roles) I was thinking about applying for a mid-level position but nervous since I haven’t officially held a junior planner title yet. Thoughts?
