Lazy Sunday? Not Here

5PM ET is around the corner (see the image below for more context)… Networking to break into Banking or the Buyside IS GOING TO HELP. I hear quite a bit “oh I knew I had to network to break into banking, but I thought I wouldn’t need to do that to break into the Buyside?” Why not?

Let’s take a look at the numbers for a second:

  • 20,000 Investment Banking Analysts
  • 2,000 Buyside Associate Positions

Breaking into Banking is tough, yes (and congrats if you did it) — but breaking into the Buyside is EVEN TOUGHER.

Networking is important as you figure out which role on the Buyside might be a fit for you now more than ever! You want to figure out what people like about their firm, how the culture might be, what the work-life balance looks like?

Do they have a cool Instagram account like the one Redpoint Ventures does or does your dream firm have a cool podcast/webinar like this one? Is it going to be Banking 2.0? You know who can help with that question?
