Full-time Offer

Hi,

I have a full-time offer from JPMorgan in NY. I wanted to ask if I should use this offer to get offers from Goldman Sachs or Morgan Stanley?

I am quite happy with JPMorgan but I feel that maybe I should take advantage of the offer to get an offer from more prestigious firms?

How would one go about getting an offer from other firms with an existing offer (from JPM)?

Many Thanks

Just take JP Morgan. I mean they're a pretty major bank, and Morgan Stanley and Goldman might laugh at you.

Btw, congratulations. E-champagne on me.

I have no idea. Maybe they're like "Ha, you're using JP Morgan as leverage to get an offer from us?"

I'd think using Goldman as leverage to get more money out of JP Morgan might work, but not the other way around, especially if you don't have an offer from the former.

Dude, you're a freshman. Do you have any idea how the industry works? Stop giving advice until you at least land something yourself.

It is definitely plausible to leverage the JPM, as it is one of the best banks in many areas. I would take the offer, but if you're inclined... I'm sure many banks would entertain you.

And someone feels the need to be a douchebag. I never made any claims about the validity of what I said.
