Options in life?I posted here quite some time ago stating my desire to get into equity research. I wasn't well received but I thought I might post to get the readers on this forum an update and perhaps maybe get some more advice. Since I've moved back to the states my job search has been pretty miserable. I've... 7 years 3 months
Equity research advice and career pathI am reposting in response to all the comments from my fairly long post in the equity research section, titled "to all the elitists out there."

To all the elitists out there (warning: long)Well so far thanks for the comments As some of you know, I'm currently working on a research report. I know some may think there is no point but my point is not necessarily to show banks I am as good a their ER department, but moreover, that I am at best trainable and can go further when around... 7 years 8 months
Canadian Grades to GPA?I think it depends really on your program. I took astrophysics and my department was the best in Canada, at least from the research side. I didn't have a super high GPA by the standards on this forum (~3.3ish) but I knew I was in the upper 10% of my class, actually I lied, I was the class when... 7 years 8 months
