Does anyone work in emerging markets PE or IBD?Would appreciate someone to pm with a few questions 2 years 1 month
Working out and banking?I'm starting this summer in IBD as an intern at a bulge bracket, and figured it was a good time to make some other drastic life changes as well. My college relationship ended/is on hold for the summer, I'm working my first real job, and I wanted to use this opportunity to further test my dedication... 2 years 4 months
How do you discuss the company's recent...I have a few interviews coming up with specific industry groups and was researching some recent/big deals to bring up if asked during the interview. How is it best to discuss their recent deals? Should I pick the biggest/most publicized deal of the year or the most recent deal? And how much should... 2 years 9 months
Emailing alumni at banks I'm interviewing at?What's the protocol for this? I have a ton of first rounds coming up in January and wanted to do some networking beforehand. Is finding alumni through my schools directory/linkedin and emailing them to introduce myself/ask them for a phone conversation before my first round a good idea? 2 years 10 months
Did nothing during my internship - how to...I've had 2 boutique IB internships, one during the semester soph year and one during soph summer. I'm getting ready for junior SA recruiting and wanted to work on some final edits for my resume. My second IB internship was really great, and I got to work on a lot of deals that I highlighted on my... 2 years 11 months
Emergency resume edit! Junior SA w/ previous IBD...hey guys, I just found out that the application deadline for a IBD event at my school I wanted to apply to is tonight. I wanted to get some last minute eyes on my resume, and would really appreciate if anyone can take a look at it. Let me know if you would be willing to, and I will PM you a link. 2 years 11 months
Will a buy-side internship help with SA IBD...I am considering a semester internship with an asset management firm that invests in some big-name private equity funds (KKR, Blackstone, TPG). I think that would make it a fund-of-funds but I'm not entirely sure. I previously worked at 2 boutique investment banks my sophomore year, and I'm getting... 2 years 11 months
Following up after info seasons - help!Hey guys, so I have just about every major bank coming to my school in the next ~2 weeks. I know I'm going to be meeting tons of bankers and hopefully having some good discussions with them as well, but I'm always at a loss when it comes to following up. So usually when I meet people they fall into... 2 years 12 months
How do you guys change your banking oriented...So my resume makes me look like I am dead-set on banking (which I am). Banking SA recruiting doesn't start for a few more months though, so I wanted to drop in the mean time for some other positions and get interview experience in. For those of you with previous banking internships, you do you "... 3 years 3 weeks
Anyone else get insomnia?This is getting absolutely ridiculous. I have gotten a few hours of sleep every night for the past week almost, and I'm absolutely exhausted but cannot seem to sleep. Had the same problem during my summer internship, but would drink/take some sort of pill to knock me out. Really don't want to go... 3 years 3 weeks

I hope none of those grads went for O&G. It's possible I guess; I don't see TPH, Simmons, CS, or Barcap on the list of interviewers. But what else... 2 years 1 month

If you have aspirations to get a top finance job, and not just any job, than you won't feel satisfied if you "live your life" or whatever for a few years. What does "living your life" even mean?

He seems like a guy who feels like a douche and is reaching out to the community for a way to correct that. Would not say this is completely disgusting 2 years 1 month
