Recently I spoke with a few guys at a new start up that focuses on providing young candidates the tools they need to break into Investment Banking. They provide everything from Resume over-hauls, headhunter contacts, recruiter contacts, 60 page Interview Prep Material, Phone Interview Cheat Sheets, Financial Models (DCF, M&A, LBO), and 1-on-1 consultations over the phone. This is very interested information.
Their website is StreetOfWalls.com, and courtesy of our site they will critique your resume for free, simply email them with your resume attached.
Their motto is this: 22 year old investment bankers can make up to $140,000 per year, why not invest $30-50 to give yourself an edge over your competition. These guys not only worked at a large Investment Bank but also were on the recruiting team – they’ve seen thousands of resumes and have interviewed hundreds of candidates. They claim their products are the best and necessary to give you an edge.
If you’re still trying to get into the industry & think Merger Models (picture below) is still rocket science I definitely recommend checking out the website. They’re nice guys and usually pretty quick to respond.
