Want to get into INVESTMENT BANKING?
Here is something you should know FIRST!
Only 20-30% of the people getting the job in investment banking got it with the traditional way.
The majority of them achieve the spot through NETWORKING.
Those wanting to break into the field tend to learn from the majority of successful people. But all they know is that networking is just a way, a tool to get the position that they want, NOT in terms of a strategy.
And that's how they failed, one time after another, and then keep wondering what could have gone wrong with their networking?
"Nerds do not get the job, socially adjusted people do".
Maybe the last time you came to one networking event, it was all the finance knowledge that you d in. Put yourself in the shoes of both junior and senior bankers, if you are someone spending all day dealing with the finance stuff, do you think they want to hear you talking about something like that again?
Or if it's hard to relate, you don't have to. It is, nevertheless, a FACT. You are supposed to impress and make people like you in a networking event, showing that you're LIKEABLE, and not about how you're CAPABLE.
Even if you have tried networking once and failed, or you are in misery right now coming to countless networking events, writing dozens, if not hundreds (yes, actually it's hundreds that count) but the results are not coming yet,...
Maybe it’s time to stop, stand back and take a close look at all the networking games you've been playing. Your body is just in a networking event without doing any of the necessary and must-do to get you to success. And your hands keep writing letters and emails that you don't even know whether they'll be opened.
Or maybe you have been playing no games. You've been in the traditional zone for so long, the good news has yet to come and that's the reason you are here right now reading this, looking for a solution.
Alright. Take a deep breath. You have reached the right destination.
