What can I do with ML?

Hey

Im a college freshman currently interning at UBS.
Im very smart and eager to build my career.
After i finish my internship at UBS i want to get my ass into ML.
If i have ML on my resume at such a young age what can i do?
Also im a minority.
I want people to look at my resume and be like wow you were at ubs and ml at that age.
I want to show that at a young ass age i was makin big moves.

I'm a college freshman interning with Merrill Lynch. I'm assuming you're doing a PWM internship. UBS is a good firm same quality like ML. I mean its no really like we're comparing GS and some third tier boutique bank.

What school do you go to?

Not that significant of a difference between Merrill and UBS. Maybe aim for Goldman...

Do you guys actually think ANYONE talks like that? This guy would fail an intro Ebonics course. His syntax is so off. If you are going to troll, do it properly you fucktard. If he went to Harlem, he would get his head shoved up his ass faster than he ejaculates.

This dude is obviously a troll trying to make minorities look bad. The fact that this is his second post just confirms that. He is probably some nerdy kid who failed to get any offers and is taking it out on his AA classmates who were far more qualified than him in the first place. Grow the fuck up.

hahaha o god you guys are funny

Let me be a little more professional since you wont take me serious. If you think I come off as an asshole thats cool. Im just very competitive and want to do well. Im Black, and I am interning at UBS (only black guy there). Anyways, I just want to get started in IB. After I finish this internship I want to get into ML, MS or any other top bank. I go to a PAC 10 school.

What do you guys think I should do next?

There is a clear distinction between being competitive and being rude, arrogant, and unpleasant.

If you want to accomplish anything (and I daresay you have the potential) you may want to work on that first with respect to what you should do next. But hey, what do I know?

Actually, I think Ari Gold would say something along the lines of "Wall Street is like High School Smartguy23!.....You can't fuck the prom queen until she finds out her worst enemy offered to blow you under the bleachers."
