Why do people not get return offers?
Recently talked to an analyst, and he told me that generally if you're hired as an intern, there's a spot for you in full-time. Banks want you to return, and historically, everyone who hasn't gotten a return offer was just someone who was stupid or something, like making careless mistakes or coming off as too cringe/hardo.
I keep freaking myself out at return offer rates that are like around 70-80%, but is it really true that the other 20-30% of interns are just interns that were really just bad workers? He was telling me how getting a return offer was a lot easier than you would expect, like all I have to do is not be dumb, and he thinks the virtual environment will make it even easier. He told me that I'm underestimating the amount of people who lack common sense/are just actually stupid who get an internship offer, and really thinks that I don't have to worry. Can anyone offer any insight on this?
