I've been working for a year at a large investment bank as an analyst in M&A. I was fired today after an argument with my associate that happened a couple of days ago. I'm still in absolute shock right now. I'm no longer interested in work in investment banking or finance after this experience. I am not sure what to do, I have no other skills than the ones I developed in investment banking, and they don't seem very applicable to any other roles besides finance. I am really in a dark place right now and don't know what my next step is. I am thinking about doing grad school in statistics or computer science or something quantitative, but I have no idea how that process works. I don't know what my next steps should be....
Are there any jobs out there that I can apply the skills I have built up in investment banking, but that isn't in the financial services industry?
