Careers advisor CALLS ME at 8.30 on friday and won't let me off phone for 3 hrs?!Subscribe
I'm a freshman. I want to get into banking. I have two job offers (HR analyst at big dharma-think Pfizer or work at a small fintech startup -involves some finance) but I also have had an interview at a private equity firm (very recently, like a day ago) and have a few other more finance related interviews lined up.
I am being pressured by my careers center to make a decision between those two i have already now, and not wait for any of the more finance related internships. This is because the careers center has a relationship or something with the employers and want to continue that relationship etc etc.
So the careers person CALLED ME at 8.30 on a friday, and then proceeds to not let me off the phone for 3 hours and, i shit you not, says this line "you have no choice. you have to make a decision.'
she says i must either reject one, or both of the offers by sunday at the latest, or accept one of the two and stop interviewing/resecind my candidacy at the PE firm.
This story gets more bizarre and frustrating, and she says some weird stuff to me, but I am so tired that I will leave it at that--- so guys, what route should i take to get the best result for recruiting next year for banking? a. HR analyst @pharma, b. kind of financ-y role at a start up with a great social impact backstory where I would get to work directly with the CEO or c. reject both and hope for the best with the PE firm and upcoming interviews.
Please keep in mind that I am a freshman. My college also has on campus active recruiting for most if not all the big banks and a few consulting and PE firms.
