Frequently Asked Questions
What is The Lobby?
The Lobby is a marketplace where you can instantly book mock interviews, resume reviews, and get personalized insights from investment bankers at all of the world's top banks & funds.
How does The Lobby work?
You sign up, give us your basic info such as resume and job preferences, and we will recommend some insiders tailored to your needs. You can also browse our app and choose insiders based on group, bank, seniority, and more. Once you've chosen the insiders you'd like to speak with you can book them one by one and pay in-app or you can set up a discounted package by emailing [email protected].
What should I expect when I book a call through The Lobby?
You are guaranteed a friendly conversation with a current or former employee of the specific team & company you chose. You can also count on our insiders to fulfill your objectives for the call, whether it's a mock interview or getting your resume reviewed, our insiders commit to making sure you get answers to all your questions.
Am I buying a referral? A job? An interview?
You are NOT buying referrals, jobs, or real interviews. This would be unethical and a conflict of interest for our insiders. We are working on technology to have these calls help you land jobs, stay tuned for that in the coming months!
I can't find anyone who works in the company or team I want to work for?
We are currently focused on elite finance roles. If you are interested in other industries, drop us a note at [email protected] specifying what industry you want so we can keep it in mind for upcoming launches.
Do I get the insider's contact info or full name after speaking with them?
Unfortunately, the main reason The Lobby can exist is because we respect the privacy and anonymity of our insiders. We’ve received feedback that this is actually an advantage for most candidates, who feel they finally get someone who tells them the nitty-gritty about their job and routine, without worrying about attaching their opinion to an identity and can freely speak the truth. We also don’t want their contact info to be sent to dozens of strangers who they haven’t agreed to speak with.
Insiders also do NOT make warm intro's to people in their network so that we can fully protect their identity.
What happens after the call?
You and the insider both fill out feedback on our app. This is of paramount importance to us. Your ratings help us understand how to improve the experience for you, which insiders should rise to the top of our ratings, and more. Insiders will also provide written personalized feedback at the end of each call.
