If I take job “x”, will it prevent me from doing something else later? What do I do if my connections aren’t as good as other people’s connections? The answers to these questions (and more) on this episode.
In this short, mid-week episode of Finance Career Launch we’ll tackle several listener questions, including not wanting to get typecast in a specific role (maintaining career mobility), and what to do when your school seems to lack connections.
Here are the questions … you’ll have to listen for the answers.
I can’t decide if I should pursue an opportunity in consulting/restructuring or try for a credit analyst position. What happens to people that do restructuring? Can they get jobs at other places?
Our program here is solid, but my school does not have the connections that many other schools have to some of the bigger banks. Do you have any advice on how to break into the investment banking field?
