At What Point to Give UP??
So I have been searching for an IB, Consulting, Strategy & Dev, Corp Finance, FP&A position for the better half of two years now. Its been really tough sledding for me since I didn't know any better and took a back office role at a big bank (took this job when the job market was crapping out, so I took what I could get). I had actually planned on doing advertising when I graduated (had internship in advertising, no finance but double majored in finance and marketing)
Lately, I have been getting some interviews. I've had 3 in the past two months. One for a Strategy & Development for a large manufacturing firm, a structured finance position within the advisory group of a big 4, and lately an analyst position with a boutique IB. I felt like I nailed two of the three of those and have been extremely let down by them passing on me.
I'm rounding out on 3 years stuck in back office hell and not really sure where to go from here. I was thinking about going back to B School, but I'm not too sure how they will look upon my experience. I'm quickly getting too experienced for analyst roles and internships.
I was wondering if WSO had any ideas of any positions or career advice to go from here. I feel like my career is in schambles right now because I took the first job that offered out of college in a down market.
