Investment bankers advise their clients on large scale and often high stakes financial issues. These may include things like mergers and acquisitions, selling and trading stocks. Investment bankers have expert knowledge of market trends, global economics and risk analysis. This is an occupation notorious for its long hours and high pressure working environment but is also one where salaries and bonuses are very large. The job market for investment bankers is extremely competitive and post-graduate qualifications are essential for most roles, even some graduate programs. Other graduate level positions are attainable without post graduate study though employers often provide their own extensive training or expect employees to undertake further studies after working with the organisation for a period of time. This occupation has huge potential for employment oversees, though in Australia all jobs exist only in capital cities.
