| 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.

| 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 year 7 months|
| 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...|| 1 year 8 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 year 9 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.

| 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...|| 2 years 1 month|
| 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...|| 2 years 2 months|

| Detroit and the Mainstream MediaIt just pisses me the fuck off that they basically spend half a morning covering this, only for the President to give them an out to talk about less important things that will produce nothing important. One WSOer said that there are many lessons to learn about the Detroit bankruptcy, but no one...|| 2 years 2 months|
