Lol the laziest resume I've ever seen!

You crave what you are not.
Dude, your perspective on life sucks.

Can you be more specific?

Dude this is a terrible resume. Type "mergers and inquisition student resume format" into google.

You're welcome.

I have already had it checked by the career source. They told me to keep them short.

By career source I am assuming you mean your school's career services?

Surprised they didn't make you put on an objective... Do the opposite of what they say.

Keep them short if you don't want an offer. Really you should take a look at sample resumes floating around here.

Thank you for all the help. Ill work on it and hopefully improve it.

You go to a complete non-target yet still manage to have a pretty low GPA. On top of that, your resume is pathetically bad and you barely even know it.

In sum, you will not be breaking into IB

Lol what a dick. OP should try to pull up his GPA above 3.6+ (3.8+ preferred). Seems like OP lives in DC. Get some internships on the side.

This is probably the dumbest piece of electronic text I have ever read in my life. People like you disgust me, yet I am humbled by the fact that you will never amount to anything.

OP, you're doing great. Network, work on your grades, and seize any and every opportunity. Sharpen up your resume, make it stand out. Include some hobbies about you, as well. Include something in your resume (perhaps a hobby), and in your interview, that you know sets you apart.

Puh-lease. Don't give the OP false hope; that's even worse than beating him down.

Currently: future psychiatrist (med school =P)
Previously: investor relations (top consulting firm), M&A consulting (Big 4), M&A banking (MM)

For those that helped thank you. Should I put my mayor GPA because that is a 3.8. My overall gpa is not good because I did bad in a 5 credit arabic class. I also work for my brother's hedgefund but I am still figuring out what to put down on my resume for it. It is mostly market research and industry research. Any suggestions?

Jul 2, 2013

What grade are you in? Yeah put your major GPA, try not to discuss your overall GPA if possible, because it looks bad that you did bad on your general education classes (i guess you just gave less fucks about those, but still, viewed badly).

how big is the hedgefund? Did you build any models? If not, just say you collected market research and industry research and reported to your boss to assist him in investments

You crave what you are not.

Im a rising senior. Awesomen thanks. Its about 1.3 bi. I didnt do models. I mostly look for information in the industry they are in and if I find a company that seems interesting I make a pitch.

Your opinion is irrelevant, you're some Wealth Management intern whose resume I might happen to ding for SA positions in a couple months. People like YOU disgust ME, yet I am humbled by the fact that I have the job you dream about having in a few years.

Soon you'll learn that the world is a harsh place and slackers like this guy trying to BS their way into competitive fields need a wake up call.
