I think I'm going to cry. Am I the only one who's feeling down?

There are so many people on this forum who are talking about how they got interviews and offers. Like, ya'll just post about how you're going to have an interview and act like it's not going to bother anybody. I don't have any offers. Sucks man.

As a sophomore, this is my biggest fear right now.

It takes hustle your sophomore year, especially from a non-target. I entered the game a bit late, so I had to cold call around 50 wealth management outfits before I landed a gig. This year I was able to convert that into a BB S&T offer. It takes resilience, but it's not impossible.

I know, and I am. It's rough trying to bring my GPA as high as I can, network, be social, all at the same time. Even when you give it your best, something out of your control can screw you over (bad professor) and it just brings you down. I know it's not supposed to be easy, I'm just saying though.

Instead of feeling down, let's try to rectify the problem. Why don't you have any offers?

As above, instead of complaining about it and letting it get you down, why not use it as inspiration and work harder to get interviews?

Everyone gets thrown a curve ball from time to time and it's normal to feel shitty. Be proactive, focus on what you can control (grades for example) and enjoy the little things. There are other jobs out there not in IB that pay very well with good exit opps, and if you're hellbent on IB it sounds like going back to a top MBA program will do the trick.

It's never a good feeling to be giving it your best effort and still fail. But keep at it. For ever 10 no's, there is usually one 'yes.' It's hard not to compare yourself to others, and honestly you're only handicapping yourself if you do. Give yourself an hour or two to be upset, and then let it go. It WILL get better.

Only takes one yes but you gotta have thick skin to make it in the game...

went through the same type of shit. Only one piece of advice for you: learn to enjoy the hustling process, if you can do that, getting no offers won't bother you because you know you'll keep trying and if you keep trying, you WILL get an offer.

Good luck.

Currently in a similar situation as well. I had multiple internships in relevant fields and had networked but the banks ended up giving interviews to those with a higher GPA. Damn.

Apparently I'm the only one that assumed this was a troll post..... Not sure if I should be disappointed in myself or WSO.
