Investment Banker

"Don't take the job unless this is really what you want to do."

How did you get your big breaks?

A friend set it up for me. I had three rounds of interviews, each round consisted of four interviews, and the second and third round consisted of a lunch. I feel like I met the whole bank. It was great, though, because it definitely feel like you're getting to know the bank as a whole. I felt more comfortable here than I did at other banks.

What was the best advice you received when you were first starting out in your career?

Don't take the job unless this is really what you want to do. I would suggest to anyone trying to get into this industry to read the Wall Street Journal every day, Fortune, and Business Week.

What have you learned from your experience?

You learn to manage your time very well by developing magnificent organizational skills. Communication skills are also very important.

What most excites you about your job right now?

The people I work with are so great. I know what my responsibilities are, and I know my deadlines. I can't believe how much I've grown in the past twelve months with this job. Banking in general is a great challenge.

On a scale of 1-10, how relevant was your academic major to your career? (1=not at all, 10=absolutely essential)

10. I had a degree in Finance and I think that was helpful for me to have had that exposure in college.

What would you like to have achieved by the last day of your career?

I'd like to retire young having had a successful career and made a nice bit of money in the process.
