Given any field, S&T, IB, etc. there is a shitload to know. When you interview do you always know everything there is to know and always get things right? I know a lot of guys give advice to lower monkeys but they are also in the industry and have more knowledge to give. To all the successful people, target/non-target, did you know everything there was to know cold?
I ask this b/c I see people on here and they seem to know and suggest an ungodly amount of information (not afraid of this) while I just spoke to someone at athey just hired a fixed income analyst "that doesnt know what a bond is and is learning excel" (a joke but also serious). I want to drop a nuclear fucking bomb on my interviews and literally knock peoples socks off but I dont want to go mental trying to memorize ever market indicator and its history if its un-necessary. In the end I will try to learn everything, no matter what, don't get me wrong. I am just a curious chimp.
