Continue Recruiting?

If I already signed 2020 SA position, would it be bad to continue recruiting? Wouldn't think about reneging, just curious to see what else I can land.

Yes, this is a bad idea. Why would you waste another banks time and resources if you are not going to accept the offer?

Leave the spots to some other poor schmuck who was in your position before you signed

There's a difference between browsing the Internet and interviewing when you don't need a job

You're a silly goose!

Really though this is beyond stupid, especially if it's a gig that was good enough to accept. If your name comes up between someone you're interviewing with and the bank you accepted, you'll get your ass kicked, and you'll deserve it.

That was savage but the dumbest post on this site by far was the college freshman who wanted to start an investment bank by hiring bankers who were convicted of financial crimes and then tagged his linkedin when nobody believed he was serious.

Dayman?

I think that this post is what people talk about when they call finance people greedy. Please stop.

It depends on who the bank is. If it's Deutsche Bank, I would recommend it given the significant uncertainty around them at the moment. And it's not to say that a 2020 SA position won't be available, but who knows what will happen over the next year to ensure that you still might have a position. That said, if it's not Deutsche Bank, I wouldn't. That's an easy way to burn bridges.

I get the impression (along with everyone else here) that you're wanting to interview just for fun?? If so, I agree with everyone. You're an idiot. If you're trying to see if you can get a better offer that's risky, but at least there's a reward with it. There is no benefit to wasting everyone's time.

Don't @ me

I think that is a pretty bad idea. From my understanding, word gets around faster than you'd think. You might come off as a bit of a prick if the other banks you were interviewing/networking with found out that you had signed an offer. Moreover, it'd be shitty if the firm you signed to now found out what you were trying to do. All in all, you're not being forthcoming and look like a douche from any angle.
