Should I pursue tech or IB
I've been reading up on all the tech vs ib articles on WSO and have almost come to a conclusion. Figured I should post this since each field is unique to the person.
A little about me:
I am 17, and ￼graduated high school a few months ago with a 3.8 GPA. When I was younger, all I wanted to do was work at google or another company like it, as a swe. Then about about 2 years ago, I heard about investment banking and have been trying to compare the two. Note;
I don't have much passion for anything. As shitty as this sounds, I just want to make as much money as possible until I can hopefully find passion for something.
Both of these fields pay well and I have always liked the idea of becoming a banker. I wish I could say I had passion for investment banking, but how can I, with absolutely no job experience. I don't know if I'll love it or hate it. I know there is a major WLB difference between tech and ib.
Anyway, after taking coding courses for years I have found that I don't find it rewarding or stimulating. I sit there and stare at the color coded IDE trying to make some subpar application.
If tech is that much better than banking, I am willing to force a cs degree down my throat and grind leet code until I get a job offer. I myself am leaning towards the economics and business degree at Brown.
I don't like math and the technicals of computer science also bore me. I'm ok with doing repetitive monkey work on a spreadsheet for a few years until I can level up to a better position in banking.
In the long run, what do you guys think I should do? I want to pursue something with scalability.
