Intended to demystify what has historically been a closed-door world, The Recruiting Guide to Investment Banking provides insights into many of the formal and informal aspects of working on Wall Street. Here are answers to the questions many people are reluctant to ask. From an insider's view of the hiring process and an understanding of life on the job to an introduction to the technical aspects of investment banking, this book is the equivalent of having an older sibling in the business.
