PowerPoint Shortcuts Investment Banking: Quick Tips
 
13:11
In this tutorial, you’ll get a quick but very powerful tip on how to optimize your PowerPoint setup and how to use the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) and custom shortcuts to save a ton of time when creating pitch books, presentations, stock pitches, and more. http://breakingintowallstreet.com/ "Financial Modeling Training And Career Resources For Aspiring Investment Bankers" Shortcuts Introduced: These are all BUILT-IN shortcuts: Alt, T, O: Options Menu Alt, H, G, A, L: Align Left Alt, H, G, A, T: Align Top Alt, H, FC: Font Color Shift + Left Click: Select Multiple Shapes Alt, H, G, A, V: Distribute Vertically Alt, H, G, A, H: Distribute Horizontally Alt, H, G, R: Bring to Front Ctrl + G: Group Shapes These are the NEW shortcuts you can create via the Quick Access Toolbar: Alt, 1, L: Align Left Alt, 1, T: Align Top Alt, 1: Alignment Commands Alt, 2: Font Color Alt, 1, L: Align Left Alt, 1, V: Distribute Vertically Alt, 1, H: Distribute Horizontally Alt, 6, R: Bring to Front Lesson Outline: Many PowerPoint shortcuts that you use repeatedly when creating presentations are actually cumbersome to enter. Something as simple as left alignment takes 5 keystrokes – Alt, H, G, A, L – if you use the built-in method for it. Other common commands such as distribution, font color changes, shape fill, shape outline, and shape insertion also take 3-4 keystrokes. A more efficient alternative is to set up the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) so that you can access the most common commands with shortcuts like Alt, 1; Alt, 2; Alt, 3; and so on instead. You can either import our file (see the link below under RESOURCES) or go to the Options menu (Alt, T, O) and then the Quick Access Toolbar tab, and create the menu yourself. We recommend setting “Align Objects” in position #1, followed by Font Color, Shape Fill, Change Outline Color, More Options, Arrange, and Font Size. Then, you can add the Rectangle command, Draw Horizontal Text Box, Shapes, Straight Connector, and Merge Shapes. These are some of the most frequently used commands in PowerPoint, and you’ll save a ton of time with the new, shorter versions. A command like Align that used to take 5 keystrokes now takes only 3 (Alt, 1, L/R/T/B) with this approach; even a command like Font Color that took 4 keystrokes before now takes only 2 (Alt, 2). You might see anywhere from 30% to 50% time savings when creating slides and manipulating text and objects if you set up these shortcuts properly. They’re especially useful on crowded slides with a lot of objects when you need to align and distribute shapes.

Top 10 Tips for making an Effective Cold Call to an Investment Banker

If you can get hold of some quality contacts in an investment bank try putting in a call. 1. Be informed. Know at least the name and the team of the person that you are calling. Calling a random person is of no use to you. 2. Do your research. LinkedIn is a great place to start. You can search for stuff e.g. "Head of equity trading at ABC Investment Bank" and you would be surprised what comes up. You might have to upgrade your subscription to see the details you need, however. If you Google "position and bank" the most amazing stuff comes up. You might find that the Head of HR comes up in YouTube videos and all sorts. In addition, ask any connections you have to the banking industry for people's names. 3. Don't waffle. Keep your call brief and to the point 4. Know your objective. You should have one or both of two objectives in mind: to get a job on the team you are calling or to use the influence of the person that you are calling to get your CV in front of someone else that can get you the job that you want More here: http://www.katsonga.com/girlbanker/the-most-effective-10-step-strategy-for-cold-calling-an-investment-banker

An Investment Banker Presents an Alarming Analysis of How Conservatism Lost Its Way
 
53:07
In 2001, Dean published The Rehnquist Choice: The Untold Story of the Nixon Appointment that Redefined the Supreme Court, an exposé of the White House's selection process for a new Supreme Court justice in 1971, which led to the accession of William Rehnquist to the United States' highest court. Three years later, Dean authored a book heavily critical of the administration of George W. Bush, entitled Worse than Watergate, which called for the impeachment of Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for allegedly lying to Congress. His subsequent book, released in summer 2006, is titled Conservatives without Conscience, a play on Barry Goldwater's book The Conscience of a Conservative. In it, he asserts that post-Goldwater conservatism has been co-opted by people with authoritarian personalities and policies, citing data from Bob Altemeyer. According to Dean, modern conservatism, specifically in the Christian Right, embraces obedience, inequality, intolerance, and strong intrusive government, in stark contrast to Goldwater's philosophies and policies. Using Altemeyer's scholarly work, he contends that there is a tendency toward ethically questionable political practices when authoritarians are placed in positions of power, and that the current political situation is dangerously unsound because of it. Dean cites the behavior of key members of the Republican leadership, including George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Tom DeLay, Newt Gingrich, and Bill Frist, as clear evidence of a relationship between modern right-wing conservatism and this authoritarian approach to governance. He places particular emphasis on the abdication of checks and balances by the Republican Congress, and of the dishonesty of the conservative intellectual class in support of the GOP, as a result of the obedience and arrogance innate to the authoritarian mentality. After it became known that George W. Bush authorized NSA wiretaps without warrants, Dean asserted that Bush is "the first President to admit to an impeachable offense".[25] On March 31, 2006, Dean testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee during hearings on censuring the president over the issue. Senator Russell Feingold (D-Wis.), who sponsored the censure resolution, introduced Dean as a "patriot" who put "rule of law above the interests of the president." In his testimony, Dean asserted that Richard Nixon covered up Watergate because he believed it was in the interest of national security. This sparked a sharp debate with Republican South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham, who repeatedly asserted that Nixon authorized the break-in at Democratic headquarters. Dean finally replied, "You're showing you don't know that subject very well." Spectators laughed, and soon the senator was "sputtering mad".[26] Dean's 2007 book Broken Government: How Republican Rule Destroyed the Legislative, Executive and Judicial Branches is, as he wrote in its introduction, the third volume of an unplanned trilogy. In this latest book, Dean, who has repeatedly described himself as a Goldwater conservative, built on Worse Than Watergate and Conservatives Without Conscience to argue that the Republican Party has gravely damaged all three branches of the federal government in the service of ideological rigidity and with no attention to the public interest or the general good. Dean concludes that conservatism must regenerate itself to remain true to its core ideals of limited government and the rule of law. In 2008, Dean co-edited Pure Goldwater, a collection of writings by the 1964 Republican presidential nominee and former U.S. Senator from Arizona Barry Goldwater, in part as an act of fealty to the man who defined his political ideals. His co-editor was Goldwater's son Barry Goldwater, Jr. In the 1979 TV mini-series, Blind Ambition, Dean was played by Martin Sheen. In the 1995 film, Nixon, directed by Oliver Stone, Dean was played by David Hyde Pierce. In the 1999 film Dick, Dean was played by Jim Breuer. Dean frequently served as a guest on the former MSNBC and Current TV news program, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, and The Randi Rhodes Show on Premiere Radio Networks. Historian Stanley Kutler was accused of editing the Nixon tapes to make Dean appear in a more favorable light.[27] On September 17, 2009, Dean appeared on Countdown with new allegations about Watergate in hand. He stated that he had found information via the Nixon tapes, that showed what the burglars were after: information on a kickback scheme involving the Democratic National Convention in Miami, Florida. Dean also asserts that Nixon did not directly order the break-in, but that it was ordered by Ehrlichman on behalf of Nixon.[28] In speaking engagements during 2014, Dean called Watergate a "lawyers' scandal" that, for all the bad, ushered in needed legal ethics reforms. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Dean

To help you understand investment banking, it's best to differentiate it from the type of banking that you have experience with: commercial or retail banking -- the banks that you see on the street. The bank where you maintain your current (UK), checking (USA) or savings account is a commercial or retail bank.

Importance of an investment banking internship

They will train you to ensure you have the technical skills but underlying all that they want a go-getter, someone who is hungry to excel. That is the fundamental requirement. In addition to having the right attitude, they look for: Someone who has some technical knowledge or appears to have the ability to learn quickly Personable people who will work well with others ('team players') Charismatic people with a presence especially for advisory or sales roles Self-starters i.e. people with initiative Investment banks vet their applicants with extreme care. The majority of their hiring needs are satisfied through their annual recruitment of new graduates. The vast majority of new hires are recruited after completing an eight to twelve week internship the year before they embark on full time employment. Many universities don't emphasize this point hard enough: if you want to become an investment banker, do an internship a year before you graduate. That said, a résumé/CV looks more interesting if you have a variety of different experiences: one solid banking internship plus two or three other out-of-the-box experiences (charity work, other industry or business experience) will do much more for you than three banking internships. http://www.katsonga.com/girlbanker Get, To Become An Investment Banker (The Book) USA: http://amzn.to/2bb5OFH UK: http://amzn.to/2aIoQAx @GirlBanker: https://twitter.com/#!/GirlBanker

Investment Banking Application - How I Got Into Goldman Sachs

http://www.katsonga.com/girlbanker Get, To Become An Investment Banker (The Book) USA: http://amzn.to/2bb5OFH UK: http://amzn.to/2aIoQAx @GirlBanker: https://twitter.com/#!/GirlBanker Totally swamped? Don't know how to cope with your current work load never mind making investment bank internship applications? Well, as important as getting top grades is, getting a job is just as important. In fact, I recently had a similar work load problem. I signed up to do an online course on building informational apps and I simply couldn't fit it in. The solution? An hour a day! As busy as I am, I decided that I could dedicate an hour every day to the cause as it was important enough. By sticking to that commitment I have managed to finish the course within two weeks. You can do the same for your job applications. You don't have to do everything in one go. Split the investment banking application process into one-hour batches and spread it over the next three or four weeks. I personally wouldn't wait until the Christmas holidays to make applications because some banks are reading applications as they come through and not only inviting people for interviews but making internship offers. This means the pool of internships available is shrinking every week. Here is how you can organise yourself: 1. The first application is the most crucial, it sets the trend for the rest. I wouldn't submit an application for the first week to ten days. Week one is 'research week'. You need to figure out: How the investment bank recruitment process works What your primary qualities are and how your experiences validate these qualities How to answer questions in such a way that you get job interviews Importantly, which banks to apply to (you can start at http://www.katsonga.com/girlbanker/top-50-investment-banks-which-investment-bank-should-you-apply-to At this point, I am of course going to do like any self-respecting author and plug my book, To Become an Investment Banker (spare yourself the reading and get the audiobook). It contains all the above and much more! The audio book is just over 9 hours long. 2. Research done, it's time to log onto investment bank sites and draft your first answers. In order to get access to the questions, you'll need to enter some personal details into an online application form. Enter whatever details you need to give to gain access to the application form, then copy and paste the questions into a word processor. Do this for two or three banks. 3. Draft some answers. Read through your answers. Ensure all claims are validated with a relevant example. 4. Get an independent opinion on your application form. If you can't afford professional help get a friend to do it. If your friend's feedback is very brief or overly complimentary get another friend to check your answers. Keep in mind that friends can find it hard to give constructive feedback. I had one guy send me one if his friend's cover letters and ask what I thought of it. I thought it was rubbish, he did too but he didn't know how to tell his friend so he just left it at that! 5. When you are happy with one application, send it off. Getting happy with the first application will probably take 5 to 6 one-hour slots. 6. Move on to application two. This will take 3 to 4 one-hour slots. Once you have the hang of it and there is sufficient overlap between questions you will get it done even faster. An hour a day is all you need to get all your applications done in 3 to 4 weeks.

'Analyst' is usually a three year stage, 'Associate' is normally a three to four year stage depending on progress and internal politics. 'Associate Director' in a European bank is normally two to three years. 'VP'/'Director' can be as short as two years, or indefinite! Some people never make it to MD. Your emotional quotient (people skills) and your ability to master corporate politics can be critical in making that jump from VP to MD. Can one get demoted? Unfortunately, yes! I have seen two types of demotion: 1. An actual demotion. 2. Role change. Does anyone move up the chain faster than this? Of course. If you are a star performer you can zoom right up to the top in no time. Full article at: http://www.katsonga.com/girlbanker/what-might-your-career-look-like-in-investment-banking-the-hierarchy

Hardest thing about investment banking that no one ever talks about

http://www.katsonga.com/girlbanker Get, To Become An Investment Banker (The Book) USA: http://amzn.to/2bb5OFH UK: http://amzn.to/2aIoQAx @GirlBanker: https://twitter.com/#!/GirlBanker Sitting on your butt the whole day. I thought to write about this after reading Born to Run by Christopher McDougall. I was the type of girl who found every excuse not to go to PE (physical education) in high school. By the time I got to A-level, I had convinced the school's director of studies that as I was reading four A-levels rather than the standard three, I should be permitted to attend PE only when my schedule allowed. He agreed. I was never seen on the sports field again. I really underrated the value of moving about. That said, even when I studied, I wasn't sat still for more than an hour or two at a time. After that, I would go to find my friends and we would hang out and have a laugh. I was slim and sexy; 'why would you want to run and sweat when you're body's already got it going on?', I thought. I only started to appreciate the need for exercise when I came to cold wet England. For the first time, the weather was so poor that going out for a walk did not appeal in any way, shape or form. And the food? God knows what they put in it because whereas I ate to my heart's content and didn't gain weight in Malawi, just looking at English food added an inch to my waist. Then came the banking years. Now it got really bad. I was not only gaining weight but my back was having aches and pains that it had hitherto not encountered. Sitting at your desk is painful. By year five of banking, I couldn't sit at my desk for more than twenty minutes without having to stand up to give my back a rest. Yes, standing was resting and sitting culminated in a sore back.

Is investment banking competitive? The truth is...

One important thing to remember: although, it might seem more efficient to look for jobs in this way because you are looking at many employers in one go, you should keep two provisos in mind: - Many investment banks only hire experienced hires in this way. For entry level positions and internships many expect you to apply directly through their website. - At the moment, it's an employer's market. There are many highly skilled individuals currently unemployed so in some cases employers will find it more cost efficient not to fill positions through third party recruiters. That said, I recommend using both avenues. Example Usually, an employer will list a job on their website then after a week or so hire a recruitment agent to help them fill that role. My friend who is currently looking for a job in a hedge fund was told this by a headhunter: after seeing a job posted on a hedge fund's website the recruiter approached the hedge fund to see if they needed help filling that role. The answer: "We put that job up four days ago and have so far already received 600 applications". That my friend, is the current market for jobs and Girl Banker® is here to help you navigate it. http://www.katsonga.com/girlbanker Get, To Become An Investment Banker (The Book) USA: http://amzn.to/2bb5OFH UK: http://amzn.to/2aIoQAx @GirlBanker: https://twitter.com/#!/GirlBanker

Do investment banks hire from non-target universities
 
03:09
http://www.katsonga.com/girlbanker Get, To Become An Investment Banker (The Book) USA: http://amzn.to/2bb5OFH UK: http://amzn.to/2aIoQAx @GirlBanker: https://twitter.com/#!/GirlBanker I get asked a question related to this topic every single week! The answer is yes but even from target universities they are looking for the best of the best. Part of the reason that students from the best universities stand a better chance is that they are taught or they find out for themselves "the rules of the game"; in addition to going to a top university they: a) Get coaching (I did too) b) They seek out services for mock interviews c) They make sure their application is written in great English with no grammatical errors and d) They do A LOT of research. Students from target universities do not get in just because of the institution they are from there. If you are serious about getting into an investment bank you need to be at the top of your game.

Could age count against me in applying to investment banking?
 
01:47
http://www.katsonga.com/girlbanker Get, To Become An Investment Banker (The Book) USA: http://amzn.to/2bb5OFH UK: http://amzn.to/2aIoQAx @GirlBanker: https://twitter.com/#!/GirlBanker Two key routes into an investment bank If you are trying to become an investment banker, there are two routes you should look at if you are still in university and three routes if you are already a couple or years or more into your career. 1. Use your university's careers service. Investment banks may visit your university specifically to recruit the best scholars. If you are at a top-end university they may even have a unique recruitment program/process for your institution that you can use. Even if you graduated ages ago, call up your university to check if they have resources that might help you in your job search. I recently discovered that the university of Cambridge offers lifetime help and support to alumni, I had no idea. I am sure this is not unique to my university. 2. Apply directly via the bank's website. Your university careers service won't have knowledge on every single investment bank. It is definitely worth exploring the careers section of banks independently and applying more widely to increase your chances of becoming an investment banker. Use http://www.katsonga.com/girlbanker/top-50-investment-banks-which-investment-bank-should-you-apply-to for quick links. 3. Call up some headhunters If you have work experience that investment banks would find valuable above the entry level, you can use headhunters. If you're young and haven't started your career yet, this route is mostly closed to you. In a recession, headhunters' books will also be thin but the very best ones will still have access to new positions especially at the senior level. Call them up and get your resume/CV in front of them. Whichever method you use, network proactively. Get to know people connected to the industry and learn as much as you can from each. http://www.katsonga.com/girlbanker Get, To Become An Investment Banker (The Book) USA: http://amzn.to/2bb5OFH UK: http://amzn.to/2aIoQAx @GirlBanker: https://twitter.com/#!/GirlBanker

There are lots of investment banks out there. Some that you have heard of and some that you haven't. In my book, To Become an Investment Banker, I take you through some criteria that you should look at in deciding where to apply: Deal flow Size of the firm by employees or market cap The product focus of the firm The geographical locations of the firm Diversity of the firm The team I think deal flow is the single most important factor. Why? The more transactions you work on the more likely you are to get paid well, the better your resumé/CV looks, the more people you get to meet.

Who do you think he'll find more interesting: the girl or guy with 3 bank internships, or the one that built houses in Africa one summer, climbed Everest the next and has one quality bank internship? If you sound boring and unidimensional, very few people will want to hire you because they have to work with you for many hours on a daily basis; they want to be able to chat to you about more than just what the latest Bloomberg headline is. So if you're feeling intimidated by friends that have a gazillion investment banking internships whilst you chose to do lots of other things with your holidays, trust me, there is nothing to worry about, you will stand out because of your diverse experiences.

Investment Banking Applications - Be Specific and Give Good Examples
 
01:40
http://www.katsonga.com/girlbanker Get, To Become An Investment Banker (The Book) USA: http://amzn.to/2bb5OFH UK: http://amzn.to/2aIoQAx @GirlBanker: https://twitter.com/#!/GirlBanker Your resume/CV is the first opportunity that you get to market yourself. Through your CV the recruiter decides whether or not to interview you and indeed, whether they 'like' you or not. You want everything about your resume/CV to say, I'm the person for this job, hire me! Here are some pointers to help you get noticed: 1. Avoid information overkill Try to keep it to one page but two pages is okay if there is a lot of white space. All important information should be on the first page; if page one is unimpressive the recruiter will not waste any time by going to page 2. 2. Bold the important facts so that they stand out Some people only skim read. If you bold your key selling points then they won't miss them. 3. Stick to short bullet points The maximum length of any bullet point should be two lines, ideally. It stops the reader from getting bored. Don't use a narrative style, write in short punchy sentences. 4. Don't make any grammatical or spelling errors - not even one. Such mistakes say: I am lazy I have poor attention to detail I'm not not client-ready I can't work independently I'm a poor quality hire 5. Only include facts that make you relevant to the job at hand A resume / CV is a snapshot of your qualifications for a specific job. You don't need to include: Interests or hobbies, unless they directly add to your value as a new hire Previous salaries Reasons for leaving former jobs 6. Don't mass produce your resume / CV Unless you are applying for identical roles in different companies, you should not send identical resumes/ CVs out. Customise them according to what you are applying for. If you're applying to a TMT Team in IBD mention things that highlight your tech knowledge. Can you build apps and websites? Which web building languages do you use? Although you won't be doing any of this stuff it shows you are plugged in to the psyche of the tech world. If you are applying to a Healthcare team that tech knowledge is going to look misplaced so you'd include less of it. 7. Lacking relevant work experience? Focus on your skills. Even if you have never worked before, whatever life experiences you have, there will be some transferable skills. Organisational skills developed as result of being the eldest of five children? Experience dealing with difficult situations as a result of being the Head of House at school? Mental perseverance developed from being a top athlete or musician at school and having to train for crazy hours when most of your friends were chilling and having a laugh. 8. Don't hide anything Make sure to have dates clearly displayed so it doesn't seem as though you're hiding career gaps. 9. Don't lie or exaggerate achievements Investment banks do background checks on all CVs, especially if you are an experienced hire so they will find out anything that is not true. 10. Get a second opinion Even if you cannot afford professional help a friend will be able to point out typos that you might have missed and other irrelevant detail. Try to ask a friend that has some experience with looking for jobs as they'll know a little more about what employers are looking for. If you can afford it, getting an independent investment banking coach/mentor will help to place you ahead of the competition. Here is an example of a good resume / CV, it's the actual CV I used to move from IBD to Derivative Sales without any changes. It's not 100% perfect but I purposefully haven't changed it because I wanted to use a real CV that got a real job. http://www.katsonga.com/girlbanker Get, To Become An Investment Banker (The Book) USA: http://amzn.to/2bb5OFH UK: http://amzn.to/2aIoQAx @GirlBanker: https://twitter.com/#!/GirlBanker
