If you’re a ‘new kid on the block’ in the world of finance, you might have thought about what it’s really like to work on the Buyside and if all the excitement is true. People often say not to mess up an interview because it could affect your chances for more opportunities in the future.



But what if you’re just curious about how you’d do?

Just do it.


Whether your goal is to join a large institution or a smaller firm in the future, it’s valuable to engage in conversations with different individuals to explore your options.

These discussions might reaffirm your interest in Investment Banking as a perfect fit, or they could steer you in a completely different direction. Why not have these conversations and see where they may lead?

It’s an opportunity to discover new possibilities and make informed decisions about your career path.
