Current situation- it's a long one.
Grew up in upstate NY in the suburbs working in a country club full of big time ballers and bankers. I generally would keep my head down and perform the job at hand without so much as a glance at some of the huge name guys. I had no idea I wanted to pursue a career in finance at this time. As I worked through highschool some of the bankers became increasingly friendly and one night they decided to invite me to their dinner table. One of the bankers was PM at a hedge fund and introduced me later that Summer to to the world of finance through books and online articles.
There was one other banker at the table, said person was MD at a reputable firm and decided to introduce me to his daughters finance club at the college I would be attending after Summer. He gave me a link to their page on the college's website and inspired me to join my first semester. About a week or so before school began, I met up with said daughter and discussed potential career opportunities and the college itself. I remember distinctly she seemed reserved and was not interested in getting to know me as a person. She was very interested in pursuing her father's career and only socialized with graduating analysts. She sort of shrugged me off immediately I guess...
However, we became somewhat friends throughout college seeing each other on campus or at the school club meetings. Nothing more until she timely graduates and I became a rising Junior. For the next two years I hadn't heard from her or her father, the MD, except on Linked.In or Facebook.
I graduated and found a job in the city in Corp Finance paying probably below average salary. I have worked at my new job for a few months but ultimately want to get my MBA to lateral into IB. I know my chances of IB are extremely slim as of now due me have zero internships as an analyst. I have 2 internships under my belt but neither relate to IB. An MBA would cost me 2 years+around $130,000 which I do not have.
HERE'S THE INTERESTING PART
A few weeks ago the MD's daughter reached out to me on Linked.In and asked if I wanted to join other club alumni for a networking event. We attend the networking event and decide to get drinks after. I know she had lightened up to me since college due to her physical behavior toward me. Grabbing my arm, laughing at all my jokes, you get it.
We ended up sleeping together that night and now she keeps calling me to meet up again.
I have zero interest in her due to the mere fact she is extremely obsessed with her work life and is super rude to others not as fortunate as her. She exactly reminds me of Regina George from Mean Girls without the looks. It doesn't make sense why should would be interested in dating when she is so focused her own work. I honestly believe it is to maximize her life earnings and marry someone who will be high ranked in her fathers firm. She doesn't work for her father due to company's nepotism policy. I wasn't going to call her back until she texted me about an analyst opening at her fathers firm. I texted her I was interested and she ghosted me. I finally decided to call her back yesterday in spite and we are going on a date next week.
I know if I did not ask her out she would not give me a reference for the job. I also know if I keep dating her she will help me get in with her fathers firm.
So my overall game plan is to get the job through dating her, work for a few months, then dump her like a bag of bricks. This would save me a lot of time and money from getting an MBA. The only reason I want to get an MBA is to position myself into a job like this.
