No matter where you are headed for finance positions, using Breaking into Wall Street’s suggestions for “telling your story” can be very helpful. Here is a quick overview of how to structure your story:
- The “Beginning” (your background)
- Your Finance “Spark” (the specific person, event, or experience that interested you in a finance career)
- Your Growing Interest (how that interest developed and changed over time)
- Why You’re Here Today and Your Future (why this firm and this group are a perfect fit for your long-term plans)
If you are an undergrad, start with #1. If you are an MBA-level candidate, start with #2. If you are far beyond that as an experienced hire, launch the conversation with #3.
