Top MBA Resume BooksDoes anyone have links/pdfs where I can get them? Before you all tell me to search through old threads, I've already searched them all and only gotten very few as most links don't work or are outdated (which I will share here). Most of these books are outdated that I did manage to find. Would... 1 year 10 months
B-School Chances with Three Years Work ExperienceHi all, Was hoping to get some advice with regards to b-school as I'm considering going next year. Thinking I'd only go if I can get into a M7 and wondering what my chances would be like given my profile. My background is that I went to a top public (UVa/UMich/Berkeley) and did a double... 2 years 2 months
Finally an offer! A story of persistenceBeen waiting literally 1-2 years now to make a post like this. Finally landed a FT offer with a solid VC firm as an analyst! Super pumped and excited to start as I have gone through hell and literally overcome all the things that you could possibly deal with. Went to a top public university (... 5 months 2 weeks
Fund Placement SpecialistsHi, Anyone here have any experience selecting a fund raising/placement specialist? Specifically for raising a fund for a PE (specifically early/mid/late stage venture and small fund sizes)?

Working in HK then moving back to USHey guys, Anyone have any idea how hard it would be to move back to US (assuming you are a US citizen) after working in HK? Obviously it would be ideal to start in the US at an IB/PE/HF, but what happens if somehow you ended up with an offer in HK at non-name brand IB/PE/HF firm? Also, this is... 3 years 4 months
Recruiting Cycles for Post-UndergraduateHi guys, If I graduated this past May and have been working the past few months in another non-IBD job, is it possible to sneak into fall recruiting cycles? OCR is starting/started but since I've already graduated is it still possible to get into those recruiting cycles? Or will I only be... 3 years 10 months
Post-Grad RecruitingHey guys, Just wanted to ask about recruiting for IBD after you've graduated undergrad/grad school. What type of timeline would I be looking at?

I recently graduated this month, but was planning on taking extra... 4 years 3 months

If you join a F50, promotions will be slow to come by, you probably won't learn as much / have as much responsibility considering you are young in your career.

First off, if you aren't being paid, how the hell are you gonna live/pay rent/food/etc. Exits (on average) in venture capital take 5-7 years. That means you won't receive a single DIME for 5-7 years.
