Does anybody work for Amex?

Postby JRG1392 » Sun Nov 01, 2015 12:38 pm

I'm a recent finance graduate with limited experience and trying to get into the credit card industry, specifically American Express. Does anybody work for them (other than in customer support), and if yes, how did you start off/end up there? There's some financial analyst positions that are 0-2 years of experience required, but even on those I'm not getting any traction. Definitely have the passion for the industry and have the product knowledge, but lack of experience is killing me and I don't know where to start? I had a 3.77 GPA as a finance major from the University of Denver, but my IT/Manufacturing internship is unfortunately not relevant at all.

Any advice anybody has would be much appreciated!

Thank you,
Josh

I'm not sure if Travis is still around but he is an Amex employee. If you search through the Amex threads here you will find some posts by him, maybe you can PM him.

Good luck!

His name is Travis Rauh. If you search "travisrauh" you'll come up with messages originating from him as well as questions answered. He's not been on here for a while however.

If you haven't already, try a google search on "how to get a job with American Express", you'll find an abundance of tips that you may find useful.
Retired, and in the process of retiring cards!

Awesome, thank you so much! I'll go through his posts and PM him. From what I've read online it's a relationship company and so you really need to know somebody and get referred in. I'll keep you updated on what happens.
