Resume Writing for Investment Banking Jobs
My name is Anna. I have been working for a global headhunting firm in the past eight years. We do only the most senior recruits for investment banks worldwide. Therefore, young bankers are usually not in my company’s radar. However I would want to make use of my knowledge in resume writing to help young people to build their investment banking career.


Investment banking is not only a job, it creates wealth, makes you outperform your peers and eventually leads to early retirement and a lifestyle that you desire.

Your investment banking career all starts with resume writing – a resume that lands you the first IB job. Actually a cover letter, the resume itself and interviewing skills are all in a row towards the same goal. Therefore I am going to cover all these topics in my iBankingresumes blog.

As a professional IB headhunter, I am not going to tell you general guidelines of resume writing, but things that hiring managers are actually looking for in the real world of investment banking.

If you’ve already started your investment banking career and are planning for your next steps, this blog is also for you. Read other bankers’ stories and set a target for yourself.


If you are an experienced banker however didn’t had an interview in the past 10 years, you might want to refresh your interviewing skills from reading my blog.

Enjoy iBankingresumes blog and share your thoughts with me.
