Giving up on your dreamsSubscribe
I just wanted to come on here and thank all of you guys for providing me with great insight and advice when it came to banking on this website. Unfortunately due to COVID-19, my parents have been laid off from their jobs and can no longer pay for my college. I have tried exploring many options but it looks like at the minimum I can't return for many years to come and I am moving back to my hometown to help my parents. Due to the lack of education and large time commitment investment banking is, I am having to give up my dream of going into investment banking. To all the people I met and helped me along the way, who may never see this post, I just want to thank you. While this community can be a little brash, I appreciate the distractions and insights provided so I could try and chase my dreams. As a former first generation college student, I thought I was going to provide for my family in a capacity no one else had before. Unfortunately, that call to help has come to me much earlier than expected. If anyone has any advice for how I should approach this situation or if there is even the slightest bit of hope to one day joining the banking field, please let me know.
