Testimonials from Handy and Wencan

Joining Springboard’s mentorship program is one of the most effective way to learn and brush up your financial modelling skills. Through this mentorship program, I had a chance to build a model from scratch and hands-on experiences to troubleshoot my own model. The interactive sessions with the mentors who have industry experiences is Springboard feature that has benefited me greatly. I get to learn which particular data points are important and how they can affect my forecast assumptions – vital in creating reliable valuations.

Building a good financial model is an important skill for candidates who want to pursue a career in front-office fields. With all of the experiences during the program, as well as the support from the mentors, I believe I will have higher chances to land a role in the financial industry.

— Handy, Graduate from Model like a pro Apr ’17 batch (fb)

The advanced mentorship is a great program for any aspiring investment professionals who wants to learn financial modeling. For me, the program went beyond the mechanics of a model, and taught me a great deal on how to read the underlying assumptions of a stock price. It teaches me how to form a differentiated view on companies, and more importantly, how to express/pitch that view through a customized model that would actually make sense to a real investor.

Success Story from JL

It is always good to hear from our students, not only how they benefit from our program but also how they have been determined and committed to their better future.
JL participated in our foundation classroom training in March 2016 and after a period of preparation, she managed to join the investment industry at the beginning of 2017. Like many other Springboard success stories, she is not from a prestigious background. At the first glance of her CV back in 2016, she wasn’t someone that can stand out in the competition for interviews. However, she was not giving up and consistently making herself closer to her dream job. Now let’s hear what she shares.
