Summers Aren’t Impressive?
I don't know how to say this without sounding condescending, so I'll try and keep it factual. I'at an EB and finished training last week. I go to a nontarget, have interned every summer and semester since hs, and busted my ass to get this job. Training was pretty eye opening… the kids I'm interning with just aren't good. They don't know how to complete a template of the most simple 3SM, they can't in a template, don't know much of anything about accounting, etc.
Am I missing something? I was the most impressed by other nontargets. Do target kids just all have connections/easy interviews? Is this my bank specific? I was expecting to work with smart, driven kids. Instead I got rich, preppy, and moderately intelligent kids. Just looking for some color of why this is + why nontargets have to work so hard when the bar is apparently not that high.
