Now What? - Post Offer StagnationTwo years of hustling to get into a top investment bank in New York from a non-target finally concluded early last month with a summer analyst offer. I spent the past month celebrating and enjoying having nothing to do, and nothing to worry about. But now it seems that that has become a problem. I... 1 year 1 month
Generalist SA Program AdviceI accepted a summer analyst position at a MM in NY and was wondering if anyone can offer some advice on how to do well in, and get the most from, generalist programs. Should I begin networking within the groups I'm most interested in now? Tips/advice on how to go about the summer? 1 year 1 month
Dog NamesI got a golden retriever puppy the other day and am trying to come up with some good names for her. Trying to avoid the typical, cliche dog names and anything too 'feminine'. Possibly something finance related, which isn't easy for a female dog. Anyone have any ideas? 1 year 2 months
Phone Interview During LayoverA very important phone interview got pushed back to tomorrow, and the only time our schedules matched up was during my 80 minute layover in Milwaukee. No idea where I will be able to find a good place to do it. Not a big airport, no airline clubs, and it's the holiday season. Anyone have any... 1 year 5 months
SA 2014 Application Deadlines / Networking Trip...I am planning on making a trip to NY to network and get some face time with my contacts. Not sure when to go though.

Xanax on Drug TestPretty sure it's just the 5 panel drug screen. If not, I think your reason would be sufficient and they wouldn't terminate your employment because of it. Good luck. 1 week 3 days

How do investment bankers keep their work life...There is no work life balance, work is your life. You got to pay your dues and make sacrifices. I was talking to a CEO of a Fortune 500 company last year, and his advice for starting a career was just that, "Forget the concept of work-life balance, there is no such thing if you want to be... 2 months 1 day
Corporate Jargon That You Hate[quote=wareagle4230]"To your point" gets on my nerves.[/quote] That and "piggy-backing off of what Bob said" are probably at the top of the chart for me. Nothing like a Q&A where every questions starts with that saying. 2 months 3 weeks
Corporate Jargon That You HateCircle back. Touch base. Not in our wheelhouse. Pencils down. Bandwidth. Do you have any color on XYZ? Net-net. Best practice. A granular perspective. I'll tackle XYZ. Any sports or war reference. Don't exactly hate them, just some examples. Once you hear them, you can't help but add them to... 2 months 4 weeks

Incoming Lev Fin Analyst --> PE prep QuestionsI know the feeling. Everyone I know working FT IB or PE just tells me to enjoy college as much as possible while you still can. Took the advice to heart first semester, burning through most of what I made over the summer and my special incentive signing bonus. I highly suggest it if you haven't... 3 months 3 days
Incoming Lev Fin Analyst --> PE prep QuestionsI'm in the same situation as you but haven't been thinking about PE recruiting. I've just been focusing on learning and preparing so that I can come in as ready as possible, that's probably the best way to get ready for recruiting. Do a good job and let it go from there with a little bit of... 3 months 3 days
This Wall Street CEO Isn't Impressed By...If you go to a non-target and want it bad enough, you'll work you're ass off to get that offer, doing whatever it takes. In the end, regardless of where you end up, you'll find that that path you took was in itself beneficial. You'll learn a lot (about yourself and in an academic/business sense),... 3 months 2 weeks
