Cold-Emailing Guide.Hi guys, I figured I would give this whole free online advice thing a try and articulate my thoughts on online networking. In my experience, the success of a "cold call" is largely determined by the communication that precedes it. I’ve never actually had to “cold call” in the normative sense... 4 months 3 weeks

“Doing God’s Work”- Religiosity, Work Ethic, and...I think it’s safe to assume that, according to strict interpretation of mainstream religions, most people I know are probably not going to heaven. Religion has never played a big part of my life, nor has it in those of most of my friends. We don't judge eachother and I think we’re perfectly happy... 3 years 9 months

Just wondering...Would anyone be interested if I made a thread for cold-calling techniques? I've taken a glance over some past threads that have been posted... nothing too substantive. Have a lot of experience re: this if anyone is still interested. Cheers, 3 years 10 months

Being Honest= Bad?I had coffee today with a top 5 liberal arts grad MD at a top BB. I explained my story, my rationale for wanting to go into investment banking, etc. My pre-packaged interview questions responses, insincere as they may have been, had worked on most senior level bankers I had encountered. But this... 4 years 3 months

It essentially allows you to delay your job search by a year (a year is enough time to find a new job if you're aggressive enough), and makes you more interesting.

So you develop a skill and offer it to someone who have the capital you lack (i.e. employer). You get paid, invest that money, so that eventually you do not have to work.

Nowadays, the dilemma has come, too many closet billionaires, too much capital, but a lack of quality prospects to invest in. Due diligence, credibility... 2 years 7 months

Based on what I've seen, any second thoughts and any sense of ambivalence about life decisions will ultimately lead to mediocrity.
