Not sure if Investment Banking is for me anymore
For the past ~2 years I have been working on positioning myself to break in, only to find that working 0800-0200 every day is just not for me. I used to have hobbies, interests and a life outside of work, and am just feeling absolutely depressed doing these hours for 4 weeks straight now (in an office I don't really like culture-wise). I wouldn't mind working 60 hours a week and more on occassion, but 80-100 every week is just not what I want to do.
The main problem is that I have no idea what else to do if I won't go into ibd. I like doing analytical work in a deal setting or advising companies on things like capital structures or strategy. Are there any jobs out there that still pay decent, have ok hours and I can still transition into (having completed my studies already, Europe)? Are there tech start positions that I have completely missed, or is strategy consulting something that I might want to look into? Something else?
Thanks in advance!
