- Be clear about why you are interested in investment banking as a career path. If there are certain organizations you want to work for, let the recruiter know—and explain why.
- Show your skills. Though most investment management firms recruit graduates from a variety of degree disciplines (not just finance or economics), there are still stringent qualifications for candidates. Relevant work experience, minimum academic achievements, and specific skills are assessed, so be sure to make these clear on your resume.
- Read up on investment banking news and trends. Should you be called for an interview, it’s important that you have a deep understanding of what investment banks do and what their function is in the finance world. Commercial awareness is a prerequisite to joining the investment industry. Go to the website of the companies you are interested in working for to understand of its products, business structure, and clients. Likewise, reading publications like The Economist or the Financial Times will keep you aware of the latest events affecting the industry. Go beyond knowing what’s in the news. Recruiters also expect you to have informed opinions about issues.
