"industry expert" for equity research position [#permalink]

I have an interview coming up with a big IB firm for an energy equity research associate position. I have zero finance experience but I am finishing up my MBA in finance. I have 9 years of engineering and project management experience in the energy industry. In my recent phone interview I was told that if I could convince the hiring manager that my industry experience "adds value" that he may be willing to overlook my lack of finance experience. I am very nervous about this.

Does anyone have any insight as to how my "industry expertise" will make me a better research analyst from day 1 on the job?

Thanks.

Dude, it's very simple.

Who do you think knows more about how recent events can affect an energy company's business?

A smart but entirely academic guy who sits on a desk in Manhattan, or a guy who's been in the thick of things at an energy company for 9 years, and has just recently learned all the financial theory?

If you've learned anything in 9 years of project management there, you're likely to have immediate reactions to news, speculation, developments in your field. If you can articulate those reactions intelligently, you'll be way ahead of the traditional Wall Street analyst.
