I guess it just goes to show that rather than wasting your life talking about how bad you want to get into IB, bemoaning the inequities of the process, and spending 15 hours a day trolling an online forum, you actually went out there and did what it took to get the job done. I... 9 years 2 months

After talking to some other members on this board, I've heard that ABN has a fairly decent presence in Asia-Pacific in addition to its strength in Europe. Sounds like they're still struggling to make an impact in the... 9 years 2 months
