"A definite game-changer for me." - Incoming Summer Analyst at Bank of America Merrill Lynch



My name is Aurelian Tran. I’m an ex-Financial Analyst who has spent the last four years working for world-class investment banks and hedge funds, including Goldman Sachs, Lansdowne Partners, Lazard, and Goetzpartners.
At Goldman Sachs, I worked on the European Tech sector, covering blue-chip names such as Ericsson, Logitech, and Nokia. 

I also worked on mid-cap M&A healthcare transactions during my time at the German investment bank Goetzpartners, which I joined after a first internship at Lazard in France. 

It might seem impressive said like this. 

But it hasn’t always been the case

Only a few years back, I was rotting alone in my small, 9-square metre student room, sending 25 applications per day. 

I hadn’t much of a social life. Applying to finance jobs was pretty much the only thing I was doing.

The problem is: I couldn't get any interviews

I sent hundreds of applications, written dozens of cover letters tailored to each and every bank to prove my motivation, and sent my CV to more people than I can count...

But no matter how hard I tried, no one would answer me. 

No call from recruiters. No email. No anything. It truly felt like talking to a wall…

And then one day, after months of hard work, I got lucky and was invited to a first-round M&A interview at a small investment banking boutique in the West of France. 

But being completely unprepared on the technical side, I got rejected… 

The interview was a massacre.

And then for over four long months, I couldn’t even get one interview. It felt like crossing the desert. 

The only time I would hear from recruiters was when I received those automatic rejection emails, politely telling me that I didn't make the cut to join their ranks.

If you’ve applied to bulge-bracket banks already, you probably know what I’m talking about... 

You know, this kind of emails:
Now, I’m not going to lie: it was really depressing

I know it might sound like a cliché, but I did have extremely high ambitions for my career. I wanted nothing but the very best.

And I knew deep down that I had the potential to join the most prestigious investment banks out there. 

But no one was willing to give me a chance to prove my worth...

And the fact is, if I’m being completely honest with myself: no one could blame these top finance recruiters for rejecting me

After all, I was just an average student coming from a non-target school (I couldn’t even find my school’s name in the drop-down menu of JPM’s application portal…), with zero experience, and average grades. 

On paper, my profile was boring and weak, and banks had no reason to recruit me.

So how did I do it? 

What kind of obscure magic did I use to find my very first internship at Lazard despite having a near-worthless CV, before joining the mighty Goldman Sachs as a full-time Analyst?

Stay with me for a few seconds, and I'll tell you exactly how I did it...

In a rush? Skip my story and go straight to the course overview:

By networking with investment bankers in London, I ended up meeting a mentor, who had over a decade of experience at top-tier investment banks and hedge funds, including BAML, Evercore, and Citadel. 

If you read the financial news frequently, you may have seen his name already as he was interviewed several times by the Financial Times and Bloomberg to share his views on tech European equities. 
One of the very first things my mentor explained to me that it was very hard to win interviews at top-tier investment banks when you don't come from a "target" school

Because bulge-bracket banks can afford to pick candidates almost exclusively from elite universities. 

I did some research online to find out if this was true. And it turns out he was right: 


of new recruits at Goldman Sachs in the UK come from Russell Group Universities, including Oxford, Cambridge, and the LSE. 

Source: SHL data

“95 percent of our intake is from the top-five business schools. We create inequity in the process by doing this. There may be really good candidates out there, but it’s not worth the investment on our part to spend a lot of resources looking for them when we have a very good pool that’s easy to reach.”

Senior Investment Banking recruiter, in an interview for Harvard Business Review

It was very discouraging to hear those facts, especially coming from the mouth of a veteran investment banker who knows how IBD recruitment works inside out... 

But I didn't stop there... I asked him:

"So what can I do if I don't come from a target university? Is there any way I can still get invited to interviews at firms like JP Morgan, even if I don't have the right school brand on my CV?"

He told me: "Yes, it's possible. But for that you'll need a good referral."

If you’re like me at the time, you probably have no idea of what it is. So let me explain it very simply:

A referral is when someone who has sufficient power within a firm endorses your application internally, leading HR to put you on the list of “shortlisted candidates”

"If you obtain a good enough referral, you are virtually guaranteed to be invited for an interview, no matter how selective the investment bank is," he told me. 

According to IB recruitment executives, over 80% of jobs are filled via referrals. And yet at the time, I had no idea it worked that way…

How referrals work:

Let me ask you a question: 

Do you know someone who is not particularly good in finance, nor particularly bright, but who somehow managed to secure interviews at prestigious investment banks like Morgan Stanley or Credit Suisse ? 

Well, if that’s the case, you can be almost certain that this person got a strong referral, whether she knows it or not. 

Someone working for the bank, pushing his application in the inside…

So, when my mentor told me the truth about referrals, I bombarded him with questions. 

I wanted to know EVERYTHING:

How to contact investment bankers, and how to convince them to give me a referral… so that I could finally be invited for interviews.

He gave me a ton of invaluable advice, and he did so in an extremely effective manner. 

He basically downloaded a decade of knowledge about financial recruitment into my brain. 

All the best networking strategies, all the key relationship rules that every candidate must know, and even examples of questions to ask insiders to "put them in your pocket" so that they can help you get on the shortlist…
Then, I applied everything he told me like a good soldier. 

To be fair, it wasn’t an easy battle… Some pieces of advice didn’t seem to work, at least for me. 

But by implementing everything he taught me, I did notice that some strategies were able to get me insider referrals almost systematically - so I kept using them and refining them over time.

After weeks of consistent practice and experimentation, I ended up building an entire cold emailing and networking system to generate insider referrals with very high consistency

I called it the "insider referral system".

With this powerful system, I would easily fire 80-100 cold emails per day, with each email specifically designed to get me referrals fast, and hence quickly land interviews at the very best investment banks in the world.

Within less than three weeks using this "insider referral system", interviews started raining from everywhere… 

I got invited to first rounds at Berenberg, UBS, Citi, Barclays, Exane, Rothschild, Fundsmith, Prudential, Goldman Sachs, and many other top banks and investment firms. 

Including smaller boutiques that many students don’t know about, but which are just as respected by industry insiders, such as Redburn, Panmure Gordon, and Bryan Garnier.

For the first time in my life as a student, who used to be completely ignored by recruiters, I had the feeling of walking on water… 

With this replicable networking system in my hands, I felt like literally anything was possible, even with a mediocre CV like mine.

Stay with me for a moment and you'll know everything about it.

How I used this networking “war machine” to break into the most prestigious investment bank in the world...

There are two main reasons why this networking system is so ruthlessly effective: 
  • The emails I sent were extremely persuasive - every word I used was designed to bring me closer to a referral; 
  • The sheer volume of daily emails sent was so high that it was statistically bound to create positive responses.
Let’s say you’re sending 80 emails per day, you get a 40% open rate, and a 10-12% response rate. That means you can expect at least 8 responses (by being very conservative). 

Out of these 8 responses from investment bankers, 3 of them are telling you they’re not looking for interns, 3 others are saying that they’ll pass your CV along (which may be treated as an indirect referral), and 2 of them will refer you directly - leading to an interview a few days later.

It’s not magic. It’s mathematics.
Illustrative example of the cold emailing system. This is not a promise of results in any kind, but a specific example designed to illustrate what type of outcomes may be achieved with this system.
The best part? All the system can be used nearly fully automatically, and it only takes 15-20 minutes a day to send all these targeted emails. 

That means that by spending less than 20 minutes per day on applications, I could easily land 2-3 quality interviews per week, without breaking a sweat.

In the busiest periods, I had over 10 interviews per week, including HR phone interviews, video interviews, and on-site meetings with investment banking professionals.

For the average candidate, getting that many interviews can take months… 

But in my case, I could do it in a single week, while spending less time on my applications than my peers!

After a few weeks, I ended up landing my very first internship at Lazard, after refusing two competing offers from top-ranked asset management firms.

All my friends were absolutely shocked. They just couldn't believe their eyes. 

Coming from my background, with zero experience and a "no-name" school, this looked like an impossible feat... 

And yet here I was, ready to sign my first internship offer at Lazard, feeling like a conqueror.  

Using the exact same “insider referral system”, I won a coveted spot in Investment Banking at elite investment bank Goetzpartners. 

A few months after that, also using this system, I landed a full-time Analyst role at Goldman Sachs in London... 
The sentiment of pride I felt when I received the news was more powerful than anything I've ever felt in my life... I was ecstatic!

At this point, I thought: how can it get any better?

The beauty in all of this is that I have nothing special. Really, I don’t. I’ve never been a bright student. 

I come from a non-target school that you’ve probably never heard of. And I started with zero experience...

I just used a smart application strategy that only very few students know how to apply. If I can do it, anybody can.

For the first time, I decided to reveal everything…

Following this unexpected career breakthrough, dozens of students have been contacting me on LinkedIn, asking for my advice on how to break into the most prestigious investment banks in the world.

Many of them were genuinely surprised to see how I could land all these sought-after spots, despite coming from a non-target school that is relatively unknown.

Due to the high demand, I even took a select few students under my wing, sharing my cold emailing & networking system with them, so that they could get the best offers.

Two of my students landed a Summer Internship at Goldman Sachs on the same year, one went to work in macro research at Bank of America, and the others secured internships or graduate roles at top asset management firms, hedge funds, or IB boutiques.

Today, I decided to help as many students as possible reach their most ambitious career goals, by sharing everything I learned about finance recruitment into a comprehensive online programme.

In this online course, I reveal:
  • All the details about the ruthless cold emailing system I personally used to land dozens of interviews at bulge-bracket banks and elite boutiques in record time...
  • All the simple networking tactics I used to convince Managing Directors and other top IBD executives to put my name in the "shortlist" of candidates invited for interviews...
  • ​All the CV and cover letter "hacks" that I've used to rebrand myself as a target candidate (despite coming from a "non-target" school), and pass the resume screening processes with ease...
  • ​All the insider strategies I've used to go from desperate non-target student with zero experience… to full-time analyst at the #1 investment bank in the world.
