Facebook / Social Media Log in Disabled!?

I had a good account on here linked to my fb with tons of content. WSO disabled the fb login feature, thus now my account is lost. Any help?

WSO back to live

We're not finished with the site migration / updated design yet (obviously) but in the mean time the site is live again and you're free to post / comment / message like normal.

Have at it monkeys!

What It Really Means to Be "Alpha"

Mod note (Andy): throwback Thursday, this originally went up September 2012

I'm fairly new here, and deciding what to write about in a blog entry might seem easy enough, but I'd rather people enjoy what I read than just read it and forget it. So I spent some time this week going through the more popular posts on WSO, and a good chunk of them revolve around this hilarious concept of being "alpha," and that "slaying hotties" is a badge of honor and the end-game for us guys in finance.

Even the posts about finding a way to be happy are all just about making money and getting ass. I'll chalk it up mostly to the college freshmen that post on this site, but I feel the need to set the record straight about what it really means to be an "alpha male." And it's a lot more simple than people think.. you don't need millions of dollars, a stable of women, or pumped up biceps. So for your reading pleasure, and inspired by previous bloggers, WhiteHat presents "The Alpha Checklist."



Why is M&I's Resume Editing Services So Much More Expensive Than WSO' ($497 vs $199)?

Have any of you used their resume services? Could you tell me what you think of it? I will really appreciate your insights. Thank you.

Hello Everyone, New to WSO

Hello Everyone! I am an avid reader of WSO. I wanted to make this post to introduce myself and have a few questions regarding life in investment banking vs. accounting, and the roles regarding startups or corporate finance (exit opportunities).

I'm going to attend a non-target school (CSU San Marcos) for their Finance program. I spoke to a Hedge Fund today and the lady there mentioned that an internship *may* be possible once I am fully accepted in. I am also meeting with a PE firm on Thursday about possible work exposure in mortgage loans with another company that works under them.
