TECH v. IBD debate
So throughout my university degree I have been working really hard to
I am going to graduate from a fairly general field (think economics, PPE, business) and will surely undertake a master in the next following years.
IBD was attractive first because of the intensity, very broad vision, very blended mix of hard and soft skills, prestige and of course..... compensation.
But, the more I advance in my life the more I consider the fact that grinding 100 hours a week until i am 50 is completely irrational: I won't have the opportunity to build a family the way i imagined it, travel, carry on my hobbies, take part to charitable work and engage in things which make a true impact (I've always been very involved in sustainable development and climate change related causes for instance).
Thus, i was wondering what kind of jobs (tech for instance or start-up?) would pay as much as IBD or more, be passionating or very stimulating in the sense of creating something great and meaningful for society?
Thanks for your answers !
