wtf? We met a bar and talked for a few minutes then she asked why i was in NYC for the summer and I said I'm doing an internship at [bank} for private wealth management. then she f***g laughed for a second like it was a joke.
Even though I missed out on an IB summer spot (rising junior) I'm still in NYC for the summer for a BB PWM position and doing a good job / like the work so far. I'm not a surf instructor from California "just ridin' through life man" but man I'm not some uptight quant (you all know who I'm referring to) either.
Is this a general trend in girls in NYC (e.g. they're reading betches love this (google "166. Investment Bankers - Betches Love This") or did i just strike out and meet the wrong girl? I'm from a smaller town and state school in midwest so not really used to this kind of bar scene. whether it matters or not she said she did something in consulting, she fit the type imo.
Anyone else in PWM get this kind of treatment? should i be ashamed?
