Exit Ops - The End of The Show IITo echo the post from Tier2Sta, I also handed in my resignation today after nearly 10 years in finance, primarily in IB, at both the BB and boutique level. I don't have quite the negative view that he does. There have been many times over the years that my job has absolutely sucked, but it has... 3 years 3 weeks
Econ Data - The Most Important Graphs of 2011This is a great set of graphs and data from The Atlantic: Data Dump I found the charts relating to taxes and government spending to be particularly interesting, and there were some trends that I wouldn't have necessarily expected, particularly that low marginal tax rates don't create jobs (... 3 years 4 months
Board of Directors as a bankerDoes anyone here have experience serving on a BOD while working as a banker? Is this common? I have recently been approached by a company, and they want me to serve on their board.

Effective DeflationI've been thinking about the new $15/month charge from Citi for not maintaining your checking account at an amount greater than $6k (most people can't). Given that they are only paying .01% on checking right now, which is 3 years 7 months

Black hair adviceFresh Prince is probably fine, Kid from Kid n Play is probably too much. Honestly, I wouldn't worry about it too much - the fact that you are even thinking about it means that you'll likely be fine. 2 days 15 hours
How easy to move from PE to VC?It will be hard if you aren't focused on tech in the PE role. You really need to have your ear to the ground to get a VC job at the moment, and I'm not sure that a generalist PE position would allow you to do that. 3 days 14 hours
Making the jump from a non-target and middle...With your MM IB summer analyst experience you should at least be able to get a few interviews as you check most of the boxes other than school. Are you in NYC? In the past, most BBs would host networking events to try to poach summer analysts from other banks in accelerated interview... 4 days 1 hour
Why are people so stingy with connections?You are clueless. People spend years building their networks, and they aren't going to put their relationships in jeopardy to help some self-entitled ass who feels they deserve an introduction because it doesn't cost money. If you come across poorly, it is a direct reflection on the person who... 4 days 16 hours
Which offer should I go with? (Freshman Summer)[quote="mshiddensecret"]You are correct. That is exactly what they do. Would you say the experience is worth it?

Further info: I'll be working part-time at USC in a local residential RE brokerage (which is why Id be graduating w/ no debt), is having unrelated job exp. a bonus over having nothing at all, if I was to attend... 1 week 2 days
My heart on my sleeveAre you meeting with tutors? Attending office hours? I'd say that there are a couple of possibilities going on - you are spinning your wheels on your own/getting lost in the weeds on your own path, while not leveraging resources available who can help you focus on what is important or 2) you are... 1 week 2 days
Which offer should I go with? (Freshman Summer)To add a little more color, #1 is also not a private equity opportunity. You don't need licensing to work in private equity (in the US at least). This is some sort of brokerage opportunity selling shares in private companies. Cold calling for that is not normal. 1 week 2 days
