Hello,
I am a consulting analyst who would like to become an investment banking analyst. I have seen a lot of positions requiring candidates with 1-3 years experiences in IB. I have the skills to do the job requirements but have not got the opportunity to get an interview. Anyone who has been in the industry would like to share some tips or share the type of skills that will stand out when getting screened by HR for the first interview, please let me know. I just need 10 minutes of your time.

Thank you for the insights. I appreciate it😊

You could write in the resume header “investment banking analyst, Goldman, jpm” then white it out. I haven’t done this but others has and it works in getting past robot screens

👍🏻

What’s your experience, all about how you spin it

I work in consulting so I cannot say I have investment banking experience on my resume. But I have studied financial modeling and valuations and am confident in selling it. The problem is I cannot get pass the HR door to have an interview to sell myself. 🥲

Looking for any advice on firms/companies to look at. I’ll also happily accept any jokes to make me feel better.
