Learning More About Your Industry: Various Resources

Hey everyone! For this post, I'd like to list some valuable resources for students to learn more about their desired career path. This post is going to have more a financial leaning, but a simple google search could help provide some further clarity if you're focused on supply chain management, accounting, etc.


Wall Street Oasis - This website is structured like a forum, but also offers financial modeling and valuation courses. They are a tad expensive, but it's worth the investment if you want to learn a lot more about it. They have forums for hedge funds, investment banking, private equity, consulting, trading, asset management, equity research, and corporate finance. Once you visit the website, you can also see potential interview questions if you're about to interview for an internship, and see company reviews. I highly recommend this site if you want to learn more about your respective industry.


Vault - This website gives company rankings, reviews, and discusses internship programs. It's a great website for learning about law firms, consulting firms, investment banks, accounting firms, and technology companies. There is a wide range of content available on this website. It's not as great as WSO in my opinion, but it's a great resource to learn more.


Dealbreaker - This website is a great resource to learn about current events in the financial industry. They discuss the catastrophe of WeWork and the future of cryptocurrencies. They post a lot of articles dealing with various hedge funds and banks. Overall, it's a great way to keep up with current events in the industry.


24/7 Wall St. - This site is fairly similar to Dealbreaker. It's largely a news website with various insights into different public companies, like Cisco. The website has a lot of interesting articles that cover some interesting takes on public companies and what's happening in the financial world.


I sincerely hope you take the time to go through these resources and figure out what you want to do with your career. It can be difficult to see where you're going to be in 5 years, but keep in mind that you are never too late to learn something new. Please reach out to me directly (on the GroupMe) if you'd like to discuss where you might want to go with your career, or if you just want some advice for interviews/coursework. I'm always happy to help!
