Please destroy my resume. I’m trying to break into investment banking for full time recruiting. I’m currently interning at a large credit rating agency in NYC (think S&P, Moodys, Fitch). Please be as critical as possible. I’ve heard a few times to add numbers/stats to my lines but I have no idea what to do without lying. Any examples on things to change? Thank you!!

Hi All,
Need your suggestions.
JAVA Microservice Developer, Devops, Angular
YOE 6 ,
CCTC 6.03
Kolkata
IBM 15 fixed (excluding PF & GF of 1L)
Nagarro 15 fixed (will negotiate till 22 I guess) Cognizant 18 fixed

I think at my age if I go with IBM I can smoothly live in Kolkata.

Or I would be less valued in IBM ? Should I try IBM after few years?

I am searching for a company where I can stay for a long time.
