Careers in Finance and employability

Binod Shankar was invited by the finance club at the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Raipur to talk to PGP students on 17 December 2021.

Binod has a combined 29 years of experience of leading and mentoring in corporate, training and entrepreneurship. With that background, he analysed two highly relevant careers for MBA grads- Investment Banking and Investment Management- including for each the nature of work, the biggest employers, essential skills, how to get in and the pros and cons.

The presentation also covered the specific skills and aptitudes one must pick up, top 10 tips for career success and a selection of books, websites and podcasts for further learning. The talk was followed by a moderated Q & A session with quite a few interesting questions.

This is essential listening for anyone who is serious not just about what career to pick in finance but how to get in and grow in his/her chosen career.
