Candidate Branding Makeover™

We’ll build you a signature Irresistible Resume™ which seductively ticks-off everything a banker is seeking in a trophy candidate, and more importantly makes the banker look like a hero for finding you! More importantly, if you are lacking experience, we will help you get your foot in the door with your first relevant finance internship within just 1-2 weeks. Our method for this has worked 100% of the time to date.

Networking Funnel Optimization™

Most top banks receive 100+ applications for every hire, making networking mandatory if you’re serious about getting hired. Contrary to popular belief, networking is NOT just a numbers game. To network efficiently, you must treat it like a funnel, identify the leaks, and optimize each conversion point. We will 1) help you uncover the bankers who are eager to help, and 2) teach you a conversation framework that gets you referrals easily.

Professionally Crafted Behaviorals™

The real difficulty with behaviorals is that 1) it’s hard to know if your answer is actually what the banker wants to hear, and 2) it’s virtually impossible to accurately benchmark your answers against your competition’s. Simply coming up with your own answers and HOPING it’s good enough is a losing strategy. Instead, let an experienced banker make detailed edits to every single one of your answers, rewriting each one line by line until it’s perfect.

Accelerated Technical Mastery™

Today, interviewers are no longer asking simple “definitional questions” where the answers can be memorized. To adapt, you should learn all the technical concepts directly from an investment banker, in as little as 20-30 hours. Confidently answer the toughest technical questions without memorizing a single interview guide. Outperform your competition and the cookie-cutter answers they struggled to memorize despite 100+ hours of self-study.

Unlimited On-Demand Feedback™

Learning from an expert is always going to be better than learning through self-study. It’s the same reason why people pay six-figures to go to college when they can just self-study by reading a textbook or going online. When you DIY, you miss things that are in your blindspot. Instead, have a banker who can coach you through any situation, 24/7, on demand. Also watch your competition’s mock interviews to see how your answers truly stack up.

Elite Intelligence Network™

Investment banking recruiting is a long and grueling process, and going through it alone can be stressful and lonely. The students and alumni in our “Wolf Pack” share interview questions, recruiting intel, and job opportunities. The Wolf Pack understands that we’re stronger when working together than individually – it’s the most supportive and collaborative community you’ll find.
