Best Books: An expert behind every book
ABOUT THE BOOK
You don't have to be a financial wiz from birth (or part of the 1%) to be an investment banker. Just ask yourself this essential question: What interests you more: money or how money works?
If you look in the mirror and see an energetic, curious, flexible person who is not driven by pure greed, yet understands that money makes the world go around, investment banking with Credit Suisse could be the job for you.
This book delivers an insider's view of Credit Suisse investment banking, one of the top ranked investment banks >in the world. Amrit Rao, an analyst with Credit Suisse from 2005-2007, serves as your personal guide through this challenging but rewarding world of investment banking.
MEET THE AUTHOR
Amrit is currently a business school student at Tuck, after having worked for five years in the finance industry. Before he accepted a job at Credit Suisse (his first job out of college), he wanted to be a doctor and before that, a research scientist. His favorite foods include burritos, Thai and Indian curries, and basically anything with tofu. He's happiest when he's around his family (Mom, Dad and sister), and his close friends and their families.
EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
Diversity of Experience
With such a strong emphasis on a diverse culture, some successful applicants might not have even majored in business. There was an art history major in my analyst class. Many people majored in history, engineering, biology, it was a very long list for certain.
So, don't panic if you don't immediately know the difference between APR or APY. Credit Suisse looks for a willingness to work hard that's rooted in a desire to learn. (Start with learning the difference between fiscal and monetary policy, that's an actual question asked in some banking interviews!)
Life itself is an experience, but the successful applicant to Credit Suisse understands how to market his or her own unique experiences to the needs of Credit Suisse. For example, if you've lived or traveled abroad extensively, be able to communicate how those experiences prepared you for investment banking, such as the ability to adapt quickly to new situations.
