Why join IB as an analyst when you can join Home Depot as an associate?
My local Home Depot has job postings for entry level position, and they call them associates.
My understanding of investment banking is that you start right out of undergrad as analyst, work for two years, and then try to exit Investment banking as an associate. So, my question is, why would anyone do investment banking first since people say that the hours are so bad when you can just become an associate and skip the investment banking part? Thanks in advance for any help
bump, also curious
Home Depot has way more prestige too. Ask 10 people on the street if they've heard of Home Depot or Evercore and they'll say Home Depot every time. I hear HBS matriculates straight from HD Somerville.
One high school summer, best friends and I worked at Home Depot as Customer Service Associates.
Just some kids shooting the shit, screwing around with heavy machinery, and dodging the old timers while making a buck to spend at the county fair.
Now chained to the desk as AN2. +SB for reminding me of more innocent times.
Damn you took me back to when I was just a little johnny at the county fair tryna get w this fair lady. +SB
For a serious response entry level titles aren't uniform. In consulting and B4 you start as associate then get promoted to analyst.
can anyone shed some light on Home Depot exit ops?
thx in advance
