Q&A: MBB, BB S&T+IB, Top MBA, US/Global
Been on WSO for ages (10+ years) and asked Andy to let me do this Q&A with a fresh username so I can focus on giving the most helpful answers without any baggage. I've benefited a lot from WSO, and I want to give back in the form of a parting Q&A. Main act: Ask Me Anything, because I've done a bit of everything (typical WSO campus opportunity discussion fodder). I've (in no particular order) worked at, attended, lived in the following (one category is an offer I didn't take): - starting soon at- BB S&T - Top MBA (a top target, not tiering it over here) - BB IB "lite" (one of the financing groups) - F500 Leadership Development program - Niche consulting firm (think FTI, Eurasia Group, etc) - Developed markets (NYC, London, Western Europe, Hong Kong, Singapore, etc - more than one) - Emerging markets (Brazil, Mexico, Dubai/UAE, India, etc - more than one) - Top public university (Note: tasted rejection in every category too!) Suggested guidelines: - don't ask questions that require me to divulge my background to satisfactorily answer - don't get worked up if I'm critical of your function/firm/pet goldfish - basic courtesy/EQ (ie. no highly tactical career advice like drafting an email for a coffee chat with an Associate, etc) Ask away!
