When Emerge, Barclays’ employee networking group for those just starting their careers, put out a call for senior managers who wished to be mentored by younger colleagues, Managing Director Matt Casner signed up. Through the programme, he was assigned three junior mentors including Sahib Anand, who was then an Analyst in Compliance. Matt and Sahib hit it off right away and over the course of the programme, their friendship developed.
When Sahib decided to explore other career opportunities at Barclays, he turned to Matt for advice, introductions and preparation for the interviews that ultimately helped him land a role as an Investment Banking Analyst. This is their story.
