I did it!!!
For those who are not in the know here is a quick recap. I was offered ain AM last month. It was then quickly rescinded for a genuinely stupid reason. Then last week I got a call asking me to come in to talk to a panel for one last shot to show my qualifications. Well I left the interview an hour ago and I am proud to announce I have finally broke into an FO role! I know I said it was but I was just protecting my ID.
I gave the best interview/argument I have ever gave in my life this morning. They grilled me on behavioral stuff and my u5. One guy asked me, "What are your 3 biggest weakness?" I gave my answers and he then countered with ," Ok what is your 6th?" After that I gave one walk thru on excel and was asked to go meet the team. They then called me in and offered me the job.
I have so many people I want to thank. First WSO your guides helped me so much and made me ace this important interview. Thanks to the entire community, Y'all have helped me round myself out to be an attractive candidate. I owe the WSO community a lot. I have been trying for 3 years to break in and had only 3 interviews from banks. I was doing something very wrong. I have now been a member since February and now have an amazing career and future. I come from an embarrassing non-target with an OK GPA and zero internships and just beat out some very tough competition. Credit goes to everyone who made me better.
I want to single out a few users. First, Human...Dude you have been a mentor to me and I want to say thank you. I will buy you a drink when I go to NYC along with any other WSO user. Short the World it was the resume you edited that got me in the door in the first place. Manbearpig you gave me a one liner that made me stand out. Monty09,UFO have been very supportive too and took all guidance to heart. Flake for his Q&A post (I networked the same way you did) and for always making me think twice before posting some dumbass question or comment (same for blastoise and swagon)
I do not know if I will be on WSO as much when I first start. I will have to get use to the new demands and hours. However, I do want to give back to the community. For any WSO user in Texas know you have a friend in Houston. Thanks once again ...peace.
I told the wife the good news and she said, "That is great baby I am happy for you..Hey can you cut the grass before the rain comes?" LOL so people just don't get it but I hope y'all understand how great I feel right now.
