"I actually started admittedly sophomore summer recruiting pretty late... But I've actually secured myself two internships, one during the summer and one during the fall... And I do think the majority of that is thanks to Sam's behavioral program... If you're on the fence and you're kind of like me, who knew he wanted to do banking but wasn't sure how much value this program would really provide... I do think you should give this program a chance. For me personally, it was very worth it and actually much more worth it. Much, much more worth it than I originally thought."
"In the middle of my sophomore year, about one year before I actually did join the program, I reached out to WSMM and I talked with Sam and I made the decision not to invest in the program. And while I'm very happy and fulfilled with the outcome I got with Sam's help starting late, it's a really great offer that I got and I'm very excited about it, if there's one regret I had, it's not starting earlier because I just incurred so much stress and opportunity cost and just so much unnecessary hassle that I wouldn't need to... So, if there's one thing I regret about Wall Street Mastermind, it'd be not starting earlier."
"So since trying Wall Street Mastermind, I've completely turned all my problems around. I'm successfully landing interviews. I received two offers for my summer 2020 investment banking internship and I'm really happy that I've gotten to make so much progress even within three months of being in this program. It's been a total lifesaver for me and I feel more ready than ever to master summer 2021 investment banking recruiting. I already have four interviews lined up and I know that none of this would ever have been possible if I hadn't joined Wall Street Mastermind. So I'm really thankful to Sam for creating such a helpful program and helping me get on the path to finally reaching my dreams."
"But then I started improving my interview skills with Sam's help, behaviorals and technical skills and just last month I secured an investment banking internship at a boutique investment bank in Irvine. And the great thing is this internship's great in the sense that even with this Coronavirus situation going on, they liked me as an intern so they're allowing me to work remotely, which is not something that a lot of interns have been able to do."
"I'm going to be working at Stripes, which is a growth stage venture capital firm, or growth equity firm in New York. They manage around $2 billion that's under management."
"And in addition to this, Sam was available around the clock to answer any questions I might've had about the material. And so overall, my experience with Wall Street Mastermind has been an absolute game changer for my recruiting efforts. And I definitely recommend it to any of you out there that lack a strong experience in finance or really just looking to get a leg up on your competition in terms of your technical skills."
"I would recommend the program for those who don't have a game plan or are also who quite confused like I used to be... Didn't know where to start and well, I nailed my internship at the place I really loved (a top 3 bulge bracket bank), so thank you Sam."
"So I can't thank Sam and WSMM enough for what they've done for me. They've helped me in ways that I can't even imagine. It's been bar none the best investment that I've made in myself... Go with Sam. Go with WSMM. He's going to help you in ways that you can't imagine it's going to change your life."
"But once I joined Wall Street Mastermind, I learned how to get on a call with someone and ask the proper questions. You can't find the stuff that you get taught in this program in a book or a guide. It's something that someone needs to tell you and talk to you about. And since then, I've gotten on, I think I've talked to almost a hundred bankers in the past, like two months, and I've reached out to a bunch of people, and I've gotten at least 20 people to promise to refer me for an interview."
"I was able to talk to a very experienced banker, who is Sam. He definitely has a lot of resourceful tips and best practices in recruiting, the application process and the interview process. And I think that Sam's program definitely helped me in securing my third co-op at a boutique bank and I hope to continue to leverage those resources to help me in attaining a full-time job post-graduation."
"So I'm a sophomore right now and I've landed a sophomore summer internship at a investment banking firm, and I think that was all due to Sam."
"And so I'm so glad that I have this course and it's really, really helpful and I'm not going to endanger my future by not taking it... And yeah, definitely I would definitely recommend this course. I would definitely recommend Sam."
"Sam was really able to identify my biggest weaknesses and most importantly turn those weaknesses into my biggest strengths. I really think that WSMM is such a unique resource. And I recommend WSMM to anyone who is willing to put in the work and effort."
"So, I found the program through a friend, and this program has been super helpful to me in many key ways. What's really helpful is the structure of the program and how thorough Sam is in every module. So, Sam really takes the time to make sure you understand these key concepts in a very logical order... Overall, I think the experience is a worthwhile investment into my future. I'd recommend the program to others who want to crush recruiting and are super motivated to get offers."
"Sam's an amazing teacher. Not only is he always available to answer any last minute questions with our phone calls or interviews, but he also has a way of teaching that makes the concept seem not oversimplified, but very doable... That was very important for me coming from a liberal arts background, because I was so intimidated by the technicals that I needed to learn."
"Overall, if you're still on the fence about joining the group, just look at it from a value standpoint... because what you're investing is not even remotely close to what you can acquire based on the outcome... But Sam's program, like I said, is the only vehicle you need out there that's the most efficient one. You can be confident that he's going to guide you into the right direction..."
"I think the biggest difference is that Sam is the one who answers all of your questions, so it's really a private 1:1 session... I definitely recommend Sam's program. It's completely changed the trajectory of my career... I would really suggest you guys take what he is saying extremely seriously and give him a chance. I gave him a chance and it's completely changed my life and I'm confident he'll be able to change your life as well."
"After getting into the program, I was given so much resources and I realized very, very quickly on that the price that you pay in the beginning of the program is very, very small in terms of how much knowledge that you're actually going to be gaining from this program."
"And as a result of that one of the things I struggled most with before working with WSMM was definitely the technical portion of the interviews. I had gotten my hands on a few of the most popular guides available on the internet... And to be honest, found their coverage and content on the technical questions to be intimidating and to a degree overly complicated. When I contrast that with the content covering the technical portion of interviews of WSMM, WSMM's content is just far clearer, more succinct and more efficient... And that contrasted with the lengthy and dense PDFs of a lot of the most popular guides was really huge and super conducive to my own learning of the technical concepts."
"I decided to sign up for Sam's program to gain some guidance on how to best navigate the investment banking recruiting process. What I got really surprised me. I really got more than I expected. Sam was willing to work really hard with me and walk me through the rationale behind everything... Behind how to make a good resume, a good cover letter, a good LinkedIn profile, how to network super effectively. All of these tools Sam gives you in his program. Ultimately, thanks to Sam, I've been able to cut through the information overload online and learn things in a really time efficient manner and take home the knowledge that's most valuable and relevant to me."
"With Sam's Wall Street Mastermind program, he works with you directly on your behaviorals, and helps you with networking, which was actually a huge reason why I joined the program, since my career center didn't really introduce me into how to network with others properly, or even how to control the situation. So if you're looking for help on how to network and control your calls, and to figure out what your crux of your story is about, or how to angle it in a better manner, you should definitely check out the program."
"This summer I'll be working for SunTrust Robinson for their investment banking division. And also this spring I'm working for a private equity firm called Forge Partners and it's been a very good experience as well."
"I think having a framework or a game plan was my biggest pain point. And then within that, obviously I was always filling the gaps just through the entire program. But I think specifically understanding, one, how to kind of structure behaviorals and really understanding what the interviewer is expecting when they ask these kinds of questions was super helpful for me."
"I joined Sam's WSMM program and I absolutely loved it. Before I joined I really struggled with learning a lot like the technical stuff, and so when he passed me on his modules, it was just a different way of explaining it, and so it just helped me understand just the way things worked. You see all those guides online and everything, but they're not really teaching you how to do it. With Sam's guides, I really learned just from ground zero, just how things work and all that as well... And I was actually able to get an offer in just two interviews. I don't think I could have done any of that without him."
"The one distinguishing feature of Wall Street Mastermind was the fact that it focused essentially on working smarter than working harder in an industry that is extremely fast-faced and where time is of the essence. WSMM really taught me how to utilize time more efficiently. I really appreciate Sam who is our instructor. He was there and focused on all of my individual needs, and really catered to whatever I was seeking from the program."
"Starting from my resume, as soon as I got it back, I had over 50 to 60 edits that Sam made and it really helped perfect my resume. In terms of the network and process, I really also understood how to go about it in an efficient manner and also what questions should I be asking, how should I sort of navigate throughout the entire process. Also on the behavioral aspect, really having someone working in the investment banking industry actually look over your answers and edit them for you was extremely insightful, and I'm happy to say that my behavior answers I think are really, really solid going in, and it's really given me the confidence I need going into interviews... Sam's technical modules really helped me understand the material really easily and efficiently, and now I'm really confident in going to interviews."
"Currently I'm working at a boutique investment bank on Wall Street, so couldn't be more happy about that... A lot of people coaching out there, they care about the money, this and that. For me personally, I saw that Sam really wanted to work with me because he saw my true potential... I personally got this role thanks to my friends, my family and mentors, and especially Sam. So, thank you to him. Thank you to Wall Street Mastermind, and if you're contemplating whether or not this is worth it, if you really want it that bad, I think you find your ways and avenues to get there."
"Sam does a really good job of actually helping you and supporting you rather than just giving you a bunch of things to study and then calling it that. I think that's the best thing about Wall Street Mastermind, we have office hours that I found really helpful because you get to ask questions and not just your questions, but you hear a bunch of your other questions that you may have not thought of and it really helps you and allows you to understand every aspect of recruiting and things that you didn't really think of
"WSMM has provided me with the necessary resources to get me ahead in the recruiting field as I'm coming from a non-target school and really had no idea of what it takes. So understanding that was really insightful to help me get the leg up and everything. Whether that was through behavioral resources, technical resources, or just having the resources of the community to share how an interview process was, is really helpful and is priceless when you're thinking about going through the recruiting process only once and got to make your best chance to be the best candidate you can be."
"So I really wanted that extra help to get that extra edge. And the training program and modules have been really helpful thus far and I understand everything on a much deeper level... and I'm more confident going into interviews with my behavioral answers being perfected."
"On the technical side I had tried training with Wall Street Oasis resources and my friends, my older friends who had already gone through investment banking recruiting, they would mock interview me and stuff like that, and it just didn't stick the way that I would later do it with Sam and the way it would kind of stick there. Just didn't feel like I was learning anything and felt like I was kind of just trying to drill it into my head versus with Sam I felt like I was like learning it and absorbing it, which is really helpful... And then obviously the behavioral module and the technical module, Sam's an absolute beast at teaching technicals... [Sam] really does take his job very seriously and he coaches you very, very well and very efficiently. And the whole program is just run very well. I'm really grateful for my time being a part of it."
"Honestly, very, very grateful. Ended up getting a M&A analyst role right out of school and yeah, definitely recommend Wall Street Mastermind, has all the tools you need."
"I also have someone who is invested in my success and wants to help me succeed and get into investment banking. And he's always there at all times of the day to ask questions for even the small things like, 'Hey, can you check this email before I send it out to a boutique bank?' Or big questions like, 'Hey, can you reformat something on my resume to make it sound more applicable to what I'm looking into?'"
"Beyond just the centralization of all the information, what has also really helped is being able to get really good feedback on my own answers. So, I know that the answers that I'm preparing are actually good and will actually sound good to the interviewers when I go into for a real interview... A lot of the answers that I give in my interviews are better quality because I know what to prepare for, and also because I had my answers screened by someone who knows what they are doing."
"When it comes to recruiting everyone is different and you didn't know what your real strength and weakness are. So I would say that's like a real plus to this program and my biggest takeaway because someone can really customize basically what you did and what are your past experiences to craft the best resume possible... This especially important to me because I'm coming from an international background and English is not my natural language. So I need to know how do I strategize to demonstrate my ability to execute a job. And also at the same time, you got this kind of constant feedback and support from Sam. So whenever you got a question... we just ask you a question, then Sam will give a very detailed and helpful answer."
"I joined Wall Street Mastermind at the end of my sophomore year, and in the span of two months I was able to go through a majority of his modules and I was able to secure myself a job for that summer... Before I joined Wall Street Mastermind I was using guides like the Wall Street Oasis, but one thing I really like about Wall Street Mastermind is that it has such a streamlined path. It's just so simple to follow. As long as you put in the hard work the results are soon to follow."
"Before starting Wall Street Mastermind, I thought my resume was one of the weaker ones out of people I knew, but now after starting Wall Street Mastermind, Sam kind of guided me towards making a resume a lot stronger. I would say that a lot of bankers have actually complimented me on how strong a resume is now."
"He's given me that confidence. So overall, I would 100% recommend Wall Street Mastermind for those of you that are trying to get into investment banking. Especially if you don't have the perfect GPAs or come from the Ivy Leagues or the target schools, Sam will make sure to have you succeed in any way possible to get into IB."
"And I think what Sam does really well is that he shows a level of care and investment into his students that you won't really find anywhere else. For instance, he checks in on you or he'll check in on me to make sure I'm not behind on my recruiting or he'll be available whenever I have any questions I want to ask him. Whether it be about networking or some concept I don't really understand about the technical skills."
"After joining WSMM, I really learned how to answer all the behavioral questions. Sam really has a module that goes through all the possible questions that I would possibly see... so that really made me feel very confident before going into any of those [interviews] because I knew that I had seen the questions and prepared the questions with them beforehand."
"I was on the phone with him for a year because I was skeptical and I called him up almost every single day wondering if this is real, or if it's not. And after seeing the program through, it's really opened my eyes and really allow me to open up opportunities that I never really thought existed, and I can accredit that... I can definitely accredit the amount of help that WSMM has really just given me to be able to pursue my absolute passion of investing and just doing what I love."
"Not only does WSMM provide us a step by step process of how this entire recruiting process works, they also really break down each individual concept that we need to focus on, and I feel that I've definitely learned more about the different technicals... than I would have learned by just looking at the M&I 400 guide. Because to be completely frank, they were not clear at all and I felt that I was just memorizing answers without understanding the meaning behind it."
