Hi Anna,

Any tips for an aspiring entry-level iBanker who will be spending a year abroad as a Fulbright scholar? Fresh from undergrad, it seems like I may have to apply as an off-cycle (not straight from undergrad) hire...will this place me at a disadvantage in your opinion?

Have you got your entry-level job yet? If so, I am sure your employer will be happy to hire you again after your Fulbright scholarship programme. In any case, I don't think it is a disadvantage.

All the best!
