How can more women break into Wall Street?
Working at a prestigious firm like JPMorgan or Bank of America is one option, but certainly not the only one.
- The traditional path onto Wall Street for women typically involves getting your degree from a top-20 university and then landing a position within an analyst program at a prestigious firm like JPMorgan, Citi, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs or Morgan Stanley all of which actively recruit women graduates.
