Coming from ops can be difficult. You first need to network to get to trading and show you have the skill set to do so. Additional education and/or certs also helps.

Good luck.

I’d love to better understand what’s motivating your desire to go into IB. Is it the time spent in front of clients? Experience doing financial models? Urge to work nights and weekends? I’d also be happy to chat with you about potential mobility opportunities within BlackRock if you are amenable.

Anything is possible. But you just have to network the $hit out of it or go to top tier MBA school

Networking is probs going to yield better results vs an overpriced MBA IMO
