Very - automated systems are looking for key words. if you don't have them, you don't show up. Look at the job description and match their language and abbreviations. Move all required experiences relevant to the job to the top of your resume. You could have loads of experience in the 2nd page. No one is going to hunt for it. Good luck.

Need marital investment advice. My FIL recently gave some money to my wife which she wants to invest in rental properties.

He is a hot head and I feel I will have a sword hanging over my head in case a deal goes sideways. Continued…

Hi, where or what types of companies should sophomores & juniors apply for next summer (2022) to recruit for IB the following summer (2023)? This summer BBs wrapped up SA IB recruitment, EBs even earlier, and a fair amount of my friends missed out big time. Also, if a sophomore or junior doesn’t get a finance-related summer internship (I.e tech) and aims for an IB SA or FT position, is it harder to break in? Appreciate any advice and insight, thank you.

Honest question. When a client asks you a question that you need to refer to the billing attorney (assume it makes sense to do so and copy the client on convo in adding them in) are you all refraining from using the term billing attorney to clarify a role or is it pretty common to do so in client communications? Had one attorney show a sensitivity to the term but never had that happen before. Wondering if that is a common or uncommon sinsitivity?
