I graduated in December 2018. I worked at a small boutique IB that mainly specialized in ESOP. I had an offer but I did not want to go back because I have no interest in ESOP.
Since my graduation I have struggled with health issues and have been working on that. They were so bad that it took a toll on my mental health as well.
Here I am now.. a non-finance grad (Art History, honestly didn't have a choice with my major, long story) with finance experience, from a target school. I haven't really networked in months. At times I am a bit insecure about my major and I just don't know what to do.
As far as internship recruiting, I killed it at recruiting events, and phone interviews, I had multiple super days with some great firms, but I did not secure a summer analyst position and ended up at a small firm in Chicago.
Right now, I am feeling like there is no hope. Maybe I am being cynical... I need someone to kick my ass.
Any words of wisdom will help, please. I am a bit overwhelmed.
