Contract Work Can Lead to Investment Banking Jobs

Professionals with experience in financial restructuring, auditing and risk analysis could find this bear market a good time to be self-employed, says David King, an executive vice-president at Robert Half Management Resources. His firm specializes in placing contract people in finance and accounting.

According to King, quoted in Canada’s Globe and Mail, “Companies are going to need help in during the financial shakeout, but companies are going to be cautious about committing to a full-time position and the benefits and long-term commitment that comes with it.”

However a short-term, contract job can help you get your foot in the door of a good firm, and be at the front of the line when the economy picks up and companies start hiring again for full-time investment banking jobs and other financial positions.
