What's going on everybody,
The WSO community has helped me out tremendously over the past few years, so I've decided that it's time to give back. Recently accepted an offer from a non-/MS/ in their in NYC as a lateral hire coming of a in a non-NYC satellite office where I've been working since graduation.
It was an extremely difficult journey out of the, and I know a decent amount of users on here are stuck in the same situation so I'm happy to help and show that there is hope. Graduated this year from a top 100 non-target on the same tier as Drexel, Rutgers, and Maryland, and passed CFA L1. I also didn't have any connections whatsoever in high finance, so I really had to create my own destiny. It feels extremely liberating to be out of BO, can't stress it enough.
Happy to provide any help that I can with respect to the non-target/BO struggle, networking, CFA during school, or anything else you guys wanna know.
