SA, No Offer, Wondering about Full TimeIB
I interned this summer at the only bb whose already given some (and rejected some) offers. Within my group, only one offer was given, as it is probably their worst area at the moment in IBD. However, this aside, I feel as if I have a) failed and b) have no options.
I am still interested in working in banking, and I think outside the scope of how things played out, I did a great job. I had VP's pull me into their offices after I found out, personally apologize, and offer to write me letters of rec's. I am confident that there letters would be great, however, not confident that I would be able to land an offer at another bank.
So, what should I do? I really wanted to do banking for the long term - not just two years - and I wasn't sure if I wanted to get an MBA. I could go straight to Grad School, but I worry no one would hire me because I'd fall into that "well where do we put you" (not an analyst, not really an associate) bucket.
If I don't do banking, what other options do I have? I have no interest in sales and trading, I would like to work in a challenging environment and I would prefer to work long hours/make more money.
Has anyone been in this situation? If so, how did you handle it? What do you think my next move should be?
