This is an extremely rare opportunity for an exceptional individual in Vancouver to break into investment banking. It’s usually impossible to get a job in investment banking without decades of experience and already being pretty wealthy.
Our small, boutique investment bank is a global leader in selling technology and life science companies. Two weeks ago, we won the Exit of the Year in Canada.
We’ve been so busy making money over the past few years that we’ve completely ignored our website and social media.
We want to find someone who is truly a digital marketing genius. We’ve owned and run digital marketing companies – so we’re pretty knowledgeable. You’ll be able to educate us about the latest methods and techniques well before they are widely known.
Your initial role will be to upgrade our websites, social media and digital marketing. But the real opportunity is to transition what you’ve learned about digital into a much more lucrative career in investment banking.
That might not initially make sense, but digital marketing is just as important in our business as in any other. So, we’re not looking for someone who graduated at the top of their class in business school. We want to find someone who is equally smart but has been learning about digital marketing for five or ten years.
The person we will add to our team also has to have extraordinarily good interpersonal and sales skills. You will be face-to-face with some of the wealthiest people in the world. As part of our team, you’ll be helping to sell businesses worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Very few people have the natural ability and sales skills to compete at that level.
For the first while, we’ll be willing to pay a reasonable compensation for your digital marketing work. The time and effort you’ll devote to learning about investment banking will be an investment (like most other desirable internships.)
We prefer that you have multiple streams of income because you might not succeed in investment banking and even if you do, this extremely lucrative work is also cyclical.
To explore whether you might be the exceptional person we’d like to add to our team, please send a cover email and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please include links to some of your digital marketing work and a short description of why they qualify as “genius.”
