WSO Happy Hour Recap: NYC, Fall 2015

Thanks to all who came out this past Wednesday night for a fun evening of drinks and conversation (both professional and personal) for the first happy hour of the fall 2015 season. It's the time when all the major sports are going full swing, the weather is cooling off from the horrendous 95-degree, humid, hot garbage stench of New York, and Oktoberfest and pumpkin ales are in season and at their most delicious. The Galway Hooker pub had just recently added Bronx Pale Ale on tap, which is a delicious amber ale that makes for smooth, easy drinking at this or any other time of year.

Modern Interior Designs Fit For All Tastes

Modern living has been a part of everyday lifestyle. With concepts and objectives following current trends and styles, adaptation has spread like a wildfire from developed to developing countries. In certain reviews, modern living is up for evolution towards a completely technologically advanced world soon. Rationality and practicality are some of the values greatly practiced and are already being integrated in today's lifestyle.

These concepts are also being addressed in designing the interiors of a home.

1. UG Recruiting Part I: How a resume becomes an interview
posted by @Marcus_Halberstram

It helps but is not a guarantee if you have a high GPA (ie. 3.4 and above). Next, you SHOULD address the question of "is he/she interested in banking?". If you've never interned in finance and are a non-traditional major, you should be actively involved (preferably at a senior level) in finance clubs, participate in finance/modeling training seminars sponsored by your school, or have a section under interests with "Readings" or "Favorite Books" that have a finance tinge to them: more When Genius Failed or Fooled by Randomness or Barbarians at the Gate, Wall Street Journal, DealBook, FT; less Monkey Business or Liars Poker, etc. I wouldn't advise adding that section if the rest of your resume already sells your finance interest, otherwise its overkill and you seem uninteresting and boringly uni-dimensional. You want to be well rounded!

Formatting is EVERYTHING and there is absolutely NO excuse for typos or inconsistencies in formatting. Cover letters, if at all, should be minimalist, the main purpose of a cover letter is to address an obvious shortcoming that is apparent from your resume

For Those About to Propose

Mod Note (Andy): Best of Eddie, this was originally posted in January 2011.

With Valentine's Day two short weeks away, some of your girlfriends are no doubt ratcheting up the pressure on you to pop the question on the most romantic day of the year. Maybe you already live together. Maybe you've been going out for a few years. Maybe you met her in a Chelsea dive bar on Tuesday. It's no matter. They all want the same thing.

Allow me to introduce Charles Brandes. Sure, he's a big shot today pulling in an estimated $16 million a month, but he wasn't always. He was once just a young monkey like all of you. And therein lies his cautionary tale. For it was at that point in his career that he met Linda King Formo, a single mother earning $6 an hour as a librarian.
