8th Annual Berkeley-Haas Wall Street Trek


Last week about 30 Haas students in the Finance Club descended on NYC as part of the 8th annual Berkeley-Haas Wall Street Trek. Students pursuing investment banking careers met with a broad range of bulge-bracket and boutique firms, while a separate group of students focused on buy-side roles met with hedge funds and asset management groups within larger firms. A valuable element of the Trek emerged from the planning process itself, since many trekkers took the lead in reaching out to recruiters, alumni and personal contacts (or sometimes just initiating brand-new relationships from scratch) to schedule the itinerary. We're very grateful to all the alumni and other financial services professionals who offered their time and insights to help us better understand the NYC employment landscape and build East Coast-West Coast relationships.
