For those of you interested in a job on Wall Street... why? I'm doing research for a book and am very interested to know why bright, young minds are still being drawn to Wall Street. Did the 2008 financial crisis impact your decision (positively/negatively)?
Do the recent measures to cap pay make the industry less attractive? But mainly, why channel your brainpower to Wall Street instead of industry, tech, medicine, etc.? Thanks in advance to anyone who will offer some insight.
