I started my investment banking career with William Blair at its Chicago office. My fiancé and I were interested in working abroad for a few years, and both of our companies have sizable London offices. Last fall, I mentioned that interest. The opportunity came a bit earlier than expected as the London office was hiring within a few months.

The transition could not have been smoother; the senior team and HR were extremely supportive, the Chicago team was excited for my new opportunity, and the London team welcomed me with plenty of deals to work on.

Working in London has been an amazing opportunity—tremendous colleagues, extraordinary learning opportunities from European businesses, and just an incredible life experience.
