I get that during interview season and beyond we all cook up our "story" about why we want to work in finance, but does anyone actually believe their own story? Like, if we lived in a communist society where everyone got paid the same salary regardless of what they did, would you still have studied finance in UG? Would you still want to work in finance?
Personally, I think my job in finance is great - comparatively speaking. As in, for jobs that pay ~100K your first year out of undergrad, the hours are marginally less shitty and the work is marginally less grueling. But if money was no object, hell, I'd have majored in psychology and would be working as a chef right now. Why not?
