Trip to New York
NOTE: We have suspended sales of our guides described below as we undertake a comprehensive update. We will post a notice prominently on the site when the updated guides are available.
This Guide provides you the contacts you need to break into the top investment banks. You will find the names and contact details of the campus recruiters and human resources professionals that are busy hiring into the investment banking industry. You will find 90+ key people in the U.S., Europe and Asia. Included are addresses, email contact, educational background (if available) and current hiring activity (if available).
This is a directory of internal professionals that work inside investment banks rather than external "headhunters" as can be found in our Headhunter List.
The firms included are Bank of America / Merrill Lynch, Barclays Capital, BNP Paribas, Citigroup, Cowen, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Evercore, GCA-Savvian, Goldman Sachs, Houlihan Lokey, HSBC, Jefferies, JP Morgan, Lazard, Leerink Swann, Lincoln International, Moelis & Company, Morgan Stanley, Needham & Co., Nomura, Perella Weinberg, Piper Jaffray, Raymond James, Robert W. Baird, Royal Bank of Scotland, Societe Generale, Stifel Nicolaus, UBS and Wachovia / Wells Fargo. The recruiters are primarily U.S. focused. There are 10 recruiters included from Europe (London primarily) and one from Asia.
The guide is organized as an Excel spreadsheet to make it as easy as possible for you to select the firms and bankers that interest you. You should feel free to edit the spreadsheet, tracking responses and progress made in your job search effort in the upcoming recruiting season.
The cost of the guide is $49.95.
Q: Will this guide help me get a job in banking?
A: Yes, if you use it. You need to get out and conduct a self-directed job search by making the trek to cities like Chicago, Hong Kong, London and New York. Our page on making the New York trip explains. There is no magic bullet to breaking into investment banking but persistence in talking to people who can help you can go a long way.
Q: Will the recruiters listed in this guide pick up the phone and talk to me?
A: Sometimes yes and sometimes no. Like any contact in the business world, recruiters are busy people and are also overwhelmed in job season with work. You have to be creative in making the call and create a compelling reason for someone to talk to you. Read our section entitled Navigating the Post-Bailout Job Market to get tips on making networking phone calls.
