Last week I submitted resumes and took online sales assessments for SB and MS. Next steps?

Should I reach out to the branch managers directly? How can I stay on top of the process and drive it forward? I hear stories about it taking 3+ months, that seems crazy.

I am joining as a career changer - with 12+ yrs experience post undergrad. I also have an MBA from a top 10 school…certainly not stating this to brag just seeing if it would speed up or slow down the process. I realize other than helping get my foot in the door, my education and strong network means nothing without hard work.

any help or insight would be greatly appreciated!

You could always call them up and tell them that you've figured out the CDS market and you have found a way to identify the individual loans making up the traunches that were sold as AAA paper.  Tell the branch manager that you are the solution to keeping them from going BK or being bought out.

Remember, they need you more than you need them at this point. 

Or if that approach doesn't work, do what Ice said.

Most branch managers (any decent one) will be watching to see how determined you are to get this job.  Typically - you will prospect in the same manner.  If you sit idly by the phone, waiting for someone to call - you’re toast.

  If you really want this job - I would relentlessly pursue them until they either make you an offer - or show you the door.
