Paranoid Incoming IB Analyst
So 2 years ago I decided to pursue a career in investment banking. Coming from a very untraditional background, 100 networking calls and applications later I finally secured a FT offer at an EB. It was a grind.
Now during what was supposed to be my glorious final year at uni, I am waking up every night in fear that the market is going to crash and my offer is going to get rescinded. Pilling up my position of overpriced OTM puts... Super jealous of all the analysts who are on their desks getting amazing deal experience in this crazy QE environment, while I am wasting time finishing up my studies.
What happens if the market is gonna crash before the summer? What happened in '08, did IB offers get rescinded? Any survivors from the '08 class willing to share their experiences? Should I do everything in my power to focus as much on RX as possible from day one to prep for the unavoidable?
Any advice is appreciated.
