I’d like to move to IB, currently working in Management consulting (Boutique firm in Europe / Porsche consulting). 1 YOE, Engineering background with a master in management and finance, does the profile match better with a boutique bank to later try to apply to a larger one or should aim at the largest banks first and keep boutique firms as back-up? Any advice on the career switching?

It’ll honestly be wherever you can get your foot in the door. Apply to the full gambit and see what sticks. It shouldn’t matter much either way but find a recruiter or employee who will help you make the switch and get your resume seen.

Thanks in advance!

I have been working with a company for about 6 years as a Recruiter but I don’t feel I’m gaining the best recruiting experience due to so many limitations our company has. I’ve had to teach myself Boolean searching to be more active in recruiting. I have not had the luxury of someone to truly mentor me into a Recruiter so I’m trying to find any way I can learn and be more employable. Any advice? I’ve obtained my SHRM-CP, CIR and am in the process of a the PRC. What else can I utilize or do? Thx!

I am part of an analyst development program in a F100 company. No special roles or training, just fill empty roles and rotate you each year. My dilema is this program is 3 years long and at the end you get promoted to senior analyst. I have no peers around me bc they are all at different locations. I feel like I am getting behind because I’m so siloed and have no room to advance. My peers outside this program are already promoted. I have a masters and CPA. Should I leave?
