Returning to a bank where I f*cked up my internship and burned bridges

Long story short, I'm eyeing a return to the sellside due to some internal politics at my firm.

7 - 10 years ago, I, an immature little shit, interned at a big bank where I didn't perform well and pissed off the people in my group. That was really a dark turning point in my life and I've become much better since.

How will this affect me as I re-apply for a role now?

Depends on if there is a paper trail of your performance and if you are applying to the same group with people who'd remember you.

Mollitia et rerum esse omnis. Consequatur veritatis velit vitae quas qui et. Voluptatum quasi sequi iusto eius.
