Never say never. Your attitude determines your latitude. To answer your question though, not favorably. MBB will likely see you as damaged goods. Even if you hated banking so much, to not get a return offer is a kiss of death in recruiting for anyone.

Say hello to corporate finance.

But seriously, get that offer, it will makes things easier.

However, I heard some kid from CBS last year didn't get a return offer from Jefferson but somehow ended up at McKinsey, but that's a huge exception.

Dont know about MBA level, but my 2 of my friends who interned at a top BB in their undergrad junior year and didn't get return offer both got MBB for full time. Small sample size but it seems like MBB value banking experience.

Is this different at the MBA level than for undergrad? I got a full-time offer from my internship, but that never came up at any point + I've heard a lot of kids that do IB internships don't get return offers (compared to other internships)

My understanding is that you need this offer to make you a valued candidate if you want to venture elsewhere.

Make the sacrifice now, it'll be worth it in the end.

As the saying goes, "One may have to die to save a thousand." (or something similar).

My condolences, but suck it up.

You talk the talk but can you walk the walk?

@Banking_r_Us" please fuck off.

@Orkid if you feel comfortable disclosing that, I would mention that if they ask why you didn't get a return offer (if that ends up being the case), because it's a very reasonable justification

I'm sorry for your loss.

@Orkid have you considered trying to switch to ECM/DCM/Public Finance? I'm an associate at a MM arm of a super regional bank, the hours are a lot better than BBs and better than my counterparts in coverage/non-capital markets products who still are working fewer than their NY counterparts. Off hand I know that BB&T and Regions have leadership development programs for their capital markets arms that hire MBAs for full time and that US Bank is hiring aggressively for DCM. I had a friend who was an analyst at STRH in Charlotte and the associates had much better hours than you likely had at a NYC BB, leaving well before midnight.
