I try talking to my parents about investment banking and it just feels like I'm talking to a brick wall. Whether it's speaking about my dreams and ambitions, an interview coming up, I just feel like I don't know what to say because they don't really get it. And they always talk about themselves or whatever is on their mind. I have really close friends who work in IB and some who want to break in, so it's nice to chat with them, but I wish my folks understood. Especially since it's recruitment season soon and I'm a sophomore, the stress just piles on and I wish I could get advice from my parents rather than the internet. Feels really isolating.
