UPDATE: APPLICATION FORM IS OPEN NOW!!!!...and closing soon (offers to initial group are out soon)
Fellow WSO Primates, I've been thinking of how we've been putting out a ton more AMAs + podcasts, etc lately and I want to double down on that since it seems like it's going well and we're able to get a lot more high-quality content out on a weekly basis.
So I had an idea for a new show and wanted to see if you'd be interested in listening/watching this. Here's the concept:
- Release a new Pod/Youtube show called "Monkey to Millions" where I (or one of our mentors) take students or young finance professionals and mentor them over a ~6-24 month time period as they are entering a transition period (trying to land an IB internship, trying to break into PE or HF, etc)
- In exchange for free mentorship, free courses, free resume review, etc the student or mentee agrees to let us track their progress through a series of video calls/pods (say 6 calls over 6 months or 12 calls over 12 months or even 24 calls over 24 months depending on how young the mentee is and how far away they are from that pivot/goal)
- We're playing with the idea of keeping the mentees anonymous, but we also see a ton of value being gained if mentees did this out in the open (allows for screen share content for us to dive into their resume / linkedin tactics, etc) + short 3min video updates each week from the mentees in between the more formal / longer mentor calls.
The goal here would be to give a front-row seat over a longer time frame of the struggles and triumphs of real-life monkeys that are really struggling to land a job or land a job they like (vs just interviewing successful monkeys that have made it like the current pod)
Thoughts? Do you think some hard grinders from non-targets and/or other primates would be interested in this? I think it would actually be really interesting to get a front-row seat of what other candidates are doing, what works, what doesn't, how I advise them, tactical shit, etc...
Thoughts?!? Would you guys watch/listen to a show like this?
