    Hear how Cameron overcame these odds to receive offers from both Moelis and Rothschild in NYC, in addition to Citi in Houston.

    Also hear about the difference between WSMM and the feeder clubs at school, and how they complement each other.

    Episode 239: Adding Incoming Experiences On The Resume

    Episode 239: Adding Incoming Experiences On The Resume

    Oftentimes, you’ll find yourself in a situation where you’ll have to add a new internship to your resume, even though you just started (or are about to start) and you haven’t really done any real work yet.

    This need arises mainly because investment banks are recruiting earlier and earlier, and oftentimes that creates more urgency to add your “incoming” experiences onto your resume as soon as possible.

    So can you actually do this? And if so, how do you do it without getting into trouble?

    Hear me coach one of our students through how to do just this. He just got a new internship and joined a new club on campus, so this helped him a bunch. Hopefully it’ll help you too!

    Episode 237: Making Tradeoffs On Your Resume

    When it comes to resume building, how do you know whether you need to go out and get another relevant internship or not?

    Or sometimes, if it comes down to staying at your existing internship longer versus getting a new internship, which is the better move?

    This is a question that students commonly have, but the answer is actually more straightforward than you think.

    Hear me explain the simple criteria to use when making these tradeoffs, and then go and optimize your resume with the best experiences possible!

    Hear him talk about his comeback story.

After joining the program I feel a strong sense of direction/calmness that is unique to justifiably feel in this extremely nerve wracking and confusing recruiting period

Best Program Ever

If you wanna land a top IB job, this is the right place to be. Sam and all the coaches are very helpful and they answer all my questions about the IB process. I was hesitant as first because it was different, but I’d say this is the best investment I made in my life. If you work hard and follow the instructions, you’ll set yourself up for success. On top, Sam is very candid person who will show you tough love because her cares about your success.
