Era of the New Banker?
I just started an internship at a "top" bank, but even with my limited experience in banking and having older friends in the industry, I've noticed a big disparity between the new guys coming in and the "older" guys (26-30). There seems to be a big gap in the social skills of the 26-30 year old group versus the "new" bankers. I believe COVID is to blame because it is harder for recruiters/interviewers to get a real feel for candidates behind a computer screen, but I am wondering if I am the only one who sees this. Is it because the 26-30 year olds (and above) survive through the analyst years where anti-social kids get weeded out (or)? Or am I crazy and it is it just me at my bank?
