Some of them were good, some were bad, some were boring, some were funny. We got about 25 of them, and they all started to sound the same after a while.</p> <p>I don’t know why this sticks out in my head, but one day we were hearing from the FX research guys. This very European fellow had finished the boring presentation and had moved on to the Q&amp;A. I had mostly tuned out because this wasn’t about <span class='keyword_link'><a href="http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/finance-dictionary/trading-overview">trading</a></span>, and all I wanted to do was trade. Some noob in the back asks the FX research job if his job is stressful.</p> <p>I’m like, what the hell kind of question is that? Plus, he’s a research guy, so how stressful can that be?</p> <p>European guy takes it in stride, thinks for a moment, and says, “You know—we are all here to feel a little stress, no?”</p> <p>To this day, that is one of the most profound things I’ve ever heard.</p> <p>I think this is where you have to ask yourself, what are you trying to do here? You know that a career in banking or the capital markets is stressful, right? Do you know how stressful? Sure, there are scary stories, like about the banker kid at <span class='keyword_link'><a href="http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/company/bank-of-america-merrill-lynch">BofA</a></span> that actually died, but if you’re like a lot of people, there’s a good chance that you haven’t been mentally or emotionally tested even once in your life, not remotely. Even competitive sports doesn’t really count in a lot of cases—just because it’s physically demanding, doesn’t mean it’s stressful.</p> <p><a href="http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/blog/we-are-all-here-to-feel-a-little-stress" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/blog/we-are-all-here-to-feel-a-little-stress#comments stress http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/crss/node/250699 Mon, 15 Sep 2014 19:00:42 +0000 Jared Dillian 250699 at http://www.wallstreetoasis.com IB INTERVIEW ALERT: NEW 2014 Version of WSO Investment Banking Prep Pack Released! http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/blog/alert-2014-version-of-wso-investment-banking-prep-pack-released <div class="image-attach-teaser image-attach-node-250305" style="width: 111px;"><a href="/blog/alert-2014-version-of-wso-investment-banking-prep-pack-released"><img src="http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/files/images/Screen Shot 2014-09-11 at 4.50.18 PM.thumbnail.png" alt="Screen Shot 2014-09-11 at 4.50.18 PM.png" title="Screen Shot 2014-09-11 at 4.50.18 PM.png" rel="image_src" class="image image-thumbnail " width="111" height="150" /></a></div> <p><b>Another 100+ Questions Added...Now Over 500+</b>:</p> <p>We've sifted through 2 THOUSAND+ more questions submitted to the WSO <span class='keyword_link'><a href="http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/wso-company-database">Company Database</a></span> this past year to make the IB Prep Pack even more killer.

It is similar to an online resume you see on LinkedIn, but with a lot more detail around actual skills relevant to financial positions, scores and certifications so that recruiters can use it to filter through candidates that are a great match for their spots.</p> <p><a href="http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/forums/introducing-the-wso-applicant-database-take-5-minutes-on-wso-to-reach-hundreds-of-finance" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/forums/introducing-the-wso-applicant-database-take-5-minutes-on-wso-to-reach-hundreds-of-finance#comments Get a Job WSO Applicant Database http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/crss/node/240902 Mon, 15 Sep 2014 07:00:25 +0000 WallStreetOasis.com 240902 at http://www.wallstreetoasis.com The Rise of the Hybrid Advisor?? http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/forums/the-rise-of-the-hybrid-advisor <div class="image-attach-teaser image-attach-node-249241" style="width: 144px;"><a href="/forums/the-rise-of-the-hybrid-advisor"><img src="http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/files/images/arrow_0.thumbnail.jpg" alt="arrow.jpg" title="arrow.jpg" rel="image_src" class="image image-thumbnail " width="144" height="150" /></a></div> <p>Hi everyone,</p> <p>I came across these articles (although they are a bit dated) and I wanted to hear what everyone else had to say about them.
