How much modeling do you guys really do? I've been at this job a month and my work consists of research and slide decks.

i was given a debt paydown model to create this summer


You’re not going to be given models from the get go. You’ve got to build trust with your team first. Once you confirm to them that you produce work, they’ll begin escalating your responsibilities.

Modeling tests are usually a bit less complex than the real deal. If you approach 2-3 months in and haven’t been given meatier work, I’d start mentioning it to your staffer.


I was given a model in the first hour of working, along with legal docs to sift through, decks to extract data from, and more. You’re not missing out on anything.

It’s discouraging because I’m a fast learner, and from talking to my friends who are Financial Analysts, it doesn’t seem like what we do is so dissimilar.
