ENTERING THE FINANCE INDUSTRY
Since inception, IBI has focused on training 2 distinct types of individuals: professionals who are already in the industry but seeking to refresh, or fine tune their existing skills and individuals who are seeking to enter the industry. For those seeking to break into the finance industry, the Investment Banking Institute has implemented an approach through our investment banking course which has helped numerous graduates from the program secure highly sought after jobs. Our commitment to your success goes far beyond the 8-session training (that's just the first step).
Over the years, our experience has demonstrated that themost effective method of breaking into the finance industry is through a carefully crafted plan. Below you will find necessary steps for an effectively structured job search:
Demonstrate those skills on your resume, adding the relevant bullet points from your training experience
Master interviewing skills: learn interview Q & A's, practice mock interviews and gain confidence by knowing exactly what to say in a real interview
Learn how to send your resume to the most appropriate firms, including hundreds of midsize banks, PE firms, boutiques and equity research firms
Review and practice these finance skills, return to IBI as many times as needed to keep your skills up to date (no charge) and consult with us until you begin your job, or even later on if you need to refresh for any reason
Understand the interview follow-up process; know exactly what to do during your first month on the job, and how to add value from day one
Throughout this process, we take an individual, one-on-one approach in helping our trainees achieve their goals. Ourtraining never ends at session 8. (For more information on this topic, please call our offices and ask to speak with any of our Directors).
