I thought it would be a good idea to share my observations, and my boredom, on IB recruiting at the associate level.
On-campus recruiting: Associates look so happy. I want to be a banker. Nothing like making some money and looking this happy.
The elevators atoffices on Madison sure feel like they are going to fall apart. Are they as old as they appear?
Dammit, my emails tobankers keep getting returned. Oh wait another downsizing. No wonder.
Ahh, that's why thebuilding has all those windows. Otherwise they don't see the light of day. Now I know where all the non-targets end up.
Sign reads:On-Campus Presentation Today: Yes, I'm so there. Oh not for recruiting but for the food. Thanks for the lobster dinner and by the way here's my middle finger douchebag. Hopefully that just got me on the Elevator Gossip.
Thanks for allowing me to visit Mr. MD at. I was so glad I took 30 minutes out of my life to spend time hearing you complain about why the industry sucks and people shouldn't go into banking.
Without a doubt Barclay's has the best free pens.
One word to sum up: Weirdos
Office visit: Damn, analysts and associates look miserable. Analysts look tired but they still have that glow. It's clear that deep down they still have hope but associates just look pissed. Forget my first observation. Maybe I don't want to be an associate.
