    with a degree from the UK? nope. There is a small chance but the majority of recruiting and interviews there are done on campus and students are then invited for superdays is they do well.

    moving to there after starting a job is possible but it depends on whether they need you or not.

    Extremely difficult to explain to the authorities there why an UK excel monkey is better than an US excel monkey.

    Even with an Oxbridge or LSE 1st your chances at a job straight out of uni if you don't have US citizenship or a green card is nil.

    However, I do know someone from China who has a high 2:1 from Manchester that went to US on a post-degree exchange program, he did an internship with Goldman Sachs while on his exchange... after the exchange Goldman Sachs gave him a job on the basis that they were grooming him for a China managerial position.

    I would say the case of my friend is an exception rather than the norm.

    Well sir, what university do you go to? IB is very competitive and do you have any relevant work experience?
