Anyone was aiming for IB and suddenly lost interest?
Hey guys, anyone felt this way before? You were super ambitious about IB and did all the networking and read cover to cover the WSO Guides,, Breaking into WS, Vault stuff? But..suddenly during the recruitment process you just lost interest in it completely, maybe due to stress of the applications, or someone telling you something terrible about the role?
I'm not sure if it's just me being jaded and if I should turn back now. I think I'm falling trap to the sunk cost fallacy and feeling like it's a waste to not continue in the recruiting cycle and try to break into IB at a. I have gotten invitations to attend interviews and suddenly, I'm just not motivated and also fearful of the whole process (not knowing my technicals well).
I'm thinking of walking away now in case I start wasting even more time, and energy doing all these interviews and superdays. It's just not exciting to me. The only thing I'm scared of is that is a temporary feeling that's driven more by fear, and that I'm just trying to justify to myself why I should give up now.
I've always looked forward to the day I would get interview invites for IB but once that happened, I just felt a very deep sense of sadness. It's a complicated feeling and I'm not sure why I'm feeling this way. I guess shitting on IB would make me feel a lot better for pulling out of the game right now..
