Senior Spring Internship: Already Accepted Full...I'm already set on accepting a FT offer from one of 2-3 firms that have extended one to me. As I think about my senior Spring, what would the ethics be of taking on an internship with a MM consulting firm? Before responding to the job posting I wanted to hear your thoughts on how the boutique... 2 5 months 1 week
Leveraging a FT Offer: Proper Email EtiquetteHi Everyone, I received an offer not too long ago for a consulting analyst role. Not a "Big 3" but very well known "Tier 2". What would be the proper way to go about leveraging this offer when reaching out to contacts in other places that I am interviewing/will interview? More specifically... 5 months 2 weeks
FoF Interview & Assessment HELPHey everyone. I have an interview coming up in a couple of days. It's the first I have had with a FoF so your advice would be greatly appreciated. The interview would be for a research position. The first 30 min will be a regular interview, and the next 30 min will be an "assessment". For... 7 months 4 days
Continue Networking Post-SA Acceptance?Hey WSO. So I was lucky enough to receive a summer analyst position in one of these sophomore programs that some investment banks offer. While I'm extremely grateful to be able to focus on academics the rest of the year, I wonder if I should still be going to school career fairs/company... 1 2 years 1 month
Morgan Stanley IED Super Day (Sophomores)My guess is that this is a really small program, but is there anyone here that has gone through the interview process? I'm guessing it will be 3-4 interviews back-to-back and I'm wondering how much focus will be on technicals and how much will be focused on "fit" and "why xyz?" types of questions... 2 years 3 months

Thoughts about Sales (non-IB) InternshipsSo as a sophomore I'm looking for anything remotely related to IB this upcoming summer (I'm really interested in ER but options will remain open). I feel like a Sales internship is something I could spin come junior year recruiting. The position I've been offered is just that. It's not like... 1 2 years 4 months
Ad Sales Research--->Equity Research?If this is a stupid question, then I ask you to please go easy on me. Or make the jokes really really good. So I'm a sophomore at a target school looking for something related to Equity Research this summer. I ran across a few media companies (or companies with a media presence) offering TV/... 2 2 years 4 months
Career Investment Bankers: Does Anyone Plan On...After about a year on this site I've noticed that there are very members who are Vice Presidents, Managing Directors, and Partners. As far as those in PE and other things I see a wide range of users at different positions every now and then. Are there any current analysts/associates who plan on... 7 2 years 8 months
Yellen or Summers?Considering everyone that knows nothing about economics has chimed in on this issue, I'm surprised the distinguished finance and banking fellows of WSO haven't made a discussion about this yet. To be be honest, I'm so sick of the "Obama needs to pick a woman" crowd that I hope he picks Summers... 5 2 years 8 months

One thing I've observed at my target school is that it's a lot more difficult to pry away black college students from the "Big 3" professions. Combined with the other factors that I'm... 79 2 months 3 weeks

For all the heat that Acn takes they seem to pay competitively. Probably a consequence of 1) building a formal Strategy/MC unit in the past couple years and 2) wanting to... 47 3 months 2 weeks
