Maybe the market is terrible, and banks have slashed their hiring.
Or maybe the market is better, and hiring is up – but there’s also more competition, and it’s harder than ever to stand out.
But no matter what the market is doing, what’s stopping you from getting in and advancing on the job?
Context – knowing what it’s like to break into the industry and work there – separates those who thrive from those who merely survive.
Existing resources miss the mark because they’re not written by industry insiders and because they don’t give candid advice on what to do and what not to do.
Or, even worse, they “seem” authoritative at first… until you realize that a high-school or university student with no real experience wrote them.

What Finance is Really About, and How You Can Break In
Finance is all about numbers, Excel, and rocket-science math, right?
To some extent, it is – especially in fields like quant hedge funds where in-depth analysis and programming skills are essential.
But it is also a social industry where your success depends on convincing people that you’re smart, you can do the work, and you’re likable.
In other words, breaking into investment banking is about persuading people to know, like, and trust you, whether that’s in your conversations with them, in your applications, in your interviews, or on the job.
Mergers & Inquisitions teaches you how to do that through detailed how-to articles, case studies, interviews, and questions & answers from readers.
