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... 1 week 4 days
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... 2 weeks 5 days
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... 2 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 year 8 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 10 months
Winter Olympics or World Cup 2014: Which Will Be...Russia has the problem of Islamic terrorism, and probably a swarm of gay propaganda from the USA delegation. Brazil has unfinished infrastructure, possible price gouging, underdeveloped human capital (a lot of their prostitutes have had to learn English in preparation for their new customers)... 1 year 10 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 11 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/... 1 year 11 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... 2 years 3 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... 2 years 3 months

Compared to other groups within financial...Compared to other groups within financial services that is pretty low. And over-hiring interns for a shrinking groups screws over a bunch of people considering finance recruiting in the fall for full-time is much tougher as far as spots available. Thanks for the unsolicited advice though, I... 3 hours 15 min

But once you start that IBD job you will no longer be dependent on them for money 2.
