Hello gents, I posted a topic regarding a possible career in IB post-MBA in the future, and the general concensus seemed to be that coming out with an MBA with no IB experience would prove finding an IB job very difficult (I was hoping to possibly work 5-6 years in my current industry, get my MBA, then possibly transfer to IB). Considering some research I have done, etc. I have decided it may be best to get experience with an IB asap if I want to pursue a career in an IB in the future (after my MBA). My question is this: I studied international business and marketing, graduated from a decent school and studied quite hard. I got a great job straight out of school (in the in the Bay Area) and am getting paid very well for it. I have been here for 6 months and did several internships whilst in college in the entertainment/marketing fields. If I want to switch to IB in the near future, do you think it would be best to finish up 6 more months here (so I have somewhat solid work experience) or should I simply apply now? I would like to give this job a little more of a 'chance,' but if I do decide to definitely switch careers, will my experience simply have been a waste? Will they even care where I worked if it wasn't in finance? I took finance classes but don't remember the material to a t, yet I still have an interest in the subject. How difficult do you think it might be to "switch industries" for someone in my situation, as I don't have any IB experience? I realize this may be a difficult/absurd question, but any advice on the matter would be much appreciated. Cheers!
