Pissed at candidate for not taking offerSubscribe
So funny story but sad too.
I accepted an EB offer (think EVR/Moelis/CV) a while ago for SA 2021. I got offers from a few BBs through diversity recruiting. One of these BBs was what you'd call a "lower tier BB" ( everyone will tell you to not go there unless you don't have any other offers. They're in a horrible place rn ).
There is a dude there ( think VP or above) who is a school alum and was super super involved in my process. I called him up to express my gratitude and tell him that I am accepting an offer elsewhere. He started yelling at me about how ungrateful I am after everything that he's done for me. He listed every single way that he helped me to get my offer ( pushing resume, introducing to people). He was like "we're the best bank in the world according to xyz rankings" and "can't believe that you chose a stupid bank that no one has ever heard of over us". He then went on to shit on the EB. He also sent me an email later reiterating all of these things.
Sounds hilarious but I was upset because this is someone that I was so grateful to and I've come to see him as a mentor. I really wanted to stay in touch. How insecure do you have to be to shit on a 20 yo if they chose the place that seemed like the best fit. Lesson: full time people, please be kinder. Students who are recruiting: You will end up burning some bridges. It is not possible to make everyone happy. Just make sure that you do it respectfully and express your gratitude to everyone who's helped you.
