Worried about getting an IB job after an arrest?
I was someone who was arrested multiple times in college (underage drinking 2x, resisting arrest, fake ID, lying to an officer) and up until the day that I started my job in IB, i was very worried that these things would come up and my job would be taken away. I searched wso for someone who had a similar experience, but could never find anything.
Well I am here to assure you that misdemeanors not related to the securities industry had zero effect on my job prospect. Idk if anyone will ever read this, but even if one person 5 years from now comes across this post as their anxiously searching WSO I'll be happy that I posted this because Ik it would've helped ease my stress. Obviously I cannot speak for every bank, but this was my experience. Don't let your past define you.
EDIT: As people have pointed out in the comments, fake ID clearly can f you. I will say that my fake ID charge was with campus police and was not a felony. Nonetheless, I'm happy that people are sharing their experiences because the more information that's out there the more clarity future readers can get
