Media Professional Turns to Investment Banking – Rashmi’s Incredible Career TransitionApril 22, 2019
Rashmi Shetty’s ambition was to work with a top-tier global investment bank and that was specifically why she enrolled for Imarticus Learning’s Certified Investment Banking Operations Course.
How did we know that? Well, Rashmi’s first question on orientation day was “When will Goldman Sachs conduct their placement drive?”
Rashmi, a media graduate with a bachelor’s degree in Mass Media and a master’s degree in Mass Communication, yearned for a career in the dynamic investment banking industry but encountered a roadblock – “Where do I begin?” She came across Imarticus’ investment banking course, received positive Imarticus Learning reviews from her peers and decided to take the leap.
Considering the fact that Rashmi had no background in finance, it’s no surprise that the initial stages of the course were a tad bit overwhelming. Nevertheless, the program’s focus on everything from the basics of finance to advanced derivatives and commodities meant that even without a ‘finance degree’, Rashmi could effortlessly keep up with the learning curve. “This investment banking course is very good for anyone looking for a long-term career in investment banking,” she says.
What Rashmi liked most about the program was the practical approach to learning and the introduction of innovative teaching methods through a combination of classroom training, self-paced online lectures, and quizzes.
Even before completing the course, during her second semester, Goldman Sachs conducted a placement drive in Bangalore and Rashmi was one of the candidates for the interview. Imarticus Learning’s placement team urged her on, preparing her to face the interview through resume building workshops, interview prep, and mock interviews. Rashmi left Bangalore with an offer letter from Goldman Sachs in hand, ecstatic that she was one step closer to achieving her Investment Banking dreams.
“The interview went really well, I got placed at Goldman Sachs, and I’m so happy about it,” Rashmi exclaimed as soon as she walked into class the next day.
