I'm trying to set up a mail for myself to search for internships etc. Unfortunately, the best option for me for outlook mail is already taken (name.surname outlook com). So the only "best" options I'm left with are: surname.name outlook com name-surname outlook com Maybe someone here has better ideas?

A Wells Fargo employee sent an email to the CEO, John Stumpf, he also CC'd 200,000 other Wells Fargo employees on the email asking for a 10,000 raise for every employee. In the letter, he brought up the issue of income inequality. He pointed out that Stumpf took home $19 million in compensation for 2013. Here's the letter: [quote] Mr. Stumpf, With the increasing focus on income inequality in the United States. Wells Fargo has an opportunity to be at the forefront of helping to reduce this by setting the bar, leading by example, and showing the other large corporations that it is very possible

Hi everyone, curious whether anyone knows what the email format is for these banks in the US? For some reason, my emails keep bouncing back from these firms. P.s - I know many threads have the BofA format, but none of them seem to be working for me. Thank you!

I'm thinking whether I should go create a personal domain ($15/year at GoDaddy) and host my own email ($5/month at Google Suite or Microsoft Office 365). That way, I can have a personalized email address ([email protected]) and don't have to see ads in my inbox. In addition, I can keep my email address forever (as long as I pay for the domain annually) and thus I won't lose important contacts (but I doubt Gmail/Outlook will be shut down any time soon). However, I'm not sure if it's worth it. Now, $75/year is not a lot, but I feel like I could live with a free Gmail account and

I was wondering on what to include in an email to keep in touch with employees in a bank that I interned at last summer. Just some questions I had: (1): What are the best keep-in-touch subject lines? (2): How do I start the email? ex. "Hi, how is everything going on? I hope all is well, etc." (3): What content should I add in the email? (4*): How to passively ask if there is a spot for me to intern there again? Thanks all! I really do appreciate all the responses! Have a good one!

In 2018 I was unable to accept a corporate banking internship offer (US BB satellite office in Europe) as it did not full the mandatory internship critera in my University. Now I'm trying to get in with credit research background. Do you think contacting the recruiter this way would enhance my chances vs. applying normally? Also, feel free to rip it apart. -------------------------------------------------- Dear XXX, I want to thank you for the opportunity to interview with and to receive an internship offer from the Corporate Banking team in 2018.

WSO, So I recently put in my resignation letter and giving my 2 weeks notice. The boss, at the time, seemed upset but not overly dramatic about it. Then, yesterday I exchanged emails giving my official date and for whatever reason, he was not pleased. Thereafter, he started attacking me personally, telling me I was a wasted investment by the company along with other rants. My question is, How should I go about this? Should I even give a rat's a$$? All suggestions welcome.

I found an interesting boutique where I'd like to know more about their job opportunities etc. and found a former alumnus from my school who works there now. I was wondering is it better to send the person a message through InMail or should I email? The person's nor anyone's email is not displayed on their website, only a generic email for sending applications but naturally I'd rather go personal and contact this person. Which is better? Some people say sending a normal email by adjusting it to the email structure is fine, but then some people fear this is sort of stalkerish? And regarding

At the end of 2016, I attended a bulge bracket bank (GS, MS, JPM) presentation. I noted down the names of the bank's representatives and the contact information of the head of HR. I applied for an internship position, but didn't get it. Before and after I applied, I kept in touch with the head of HR over email. I had issued with my application, which resulted in me sending too many emails, which I think annoyed her (the replies were very unenthusiastic, if there were any). I then asked if it was too late to apply for another internship (it was), which showed how irresponsible I was. This time

Has anyone heard back/applied for this position? The original deadline was Oct 20 and campus recruiting sent out an email saying I'd heard back no more than 4 weeks after the deadline. I just looked at the app again and it now says "early process deadline Oct 20" and "standard process deadline Nov 24" Any insight as to why they changed? Possible lack of apps or just not good fits?

Young and ambitious ladies and gentlemen, I am feeling unhappy and want to share my thoughts with you. Not a fan of whining in the Internet, but I have found it hard to find people who I can open up to and who can also truly empathize with my situation. A little background, I did my undergrad in engineering at a top US program (MIT/Caltech/Stanford). I thought of myself as very sociable and thus did not want to go into an engineering career. Don't get me wrong, I love engineering, but I was afraid of getting into a fulltime job surrounded by colleagues I did not feel I fit in well with. Let's face it too, before I hit the real world, I was very ambitious and felt I was worth more than a $200k annual paycheck by the time I made senior engineer in my mid 30s.

Say your name is Andrew, do you go by Andy/Drew or Andrew in the workplace? I feel like a shortened version is friendlier and helps you build rapport with colleagues/clients (which is extremely important when you are facing clients a lot)... while a full name is more "uptight" and "professional". How do you introduce yourself to colleagues & clients? How do you sign your emails? What name do you put on your business card? Resume? I looked on linkedin and I saw people going either way. There are Andy's and Andrew's, Jim's and James', Chris and Christopher's working in GS, MS, JPM, McK etc...

Trying to network with alums from my school. I was wondering: what circumstances would sending the email to the MD or VP, say, do more harm than good? If I do screw up, Would the MD even remember me later on when I go apply or would it just be another annoyance in the sea of othe emails he'll forget about in a couple of years?
17 Oct 2018
We've all been there before. An Analyst buddy sends a group-wide email. Something about a relevant deal and he wants to be sure that all the MDs know about it. Not to mention, it's almost bonus time and he wants them to know that he knows about it. "Is he serious with this shit?" you think to yourself. Why not give him a little grief? So, you shoot off a quick reply. "Way to make me look bad, d*ckhead. Get back to spreading comps." You chuckle to yourself. Proud of your pithy, yet topical, comment, when suddenly it hits you... "Oh my God. What I have I done." You hit 'Reply All' During my

Hey all, I am a freshman at a target university and I'm currently reaching out to a whole bunch of investment banking (boutique and MM), PWM, and PE firms near my hometown. My strategy so far, specifically for boutique banks, has been to find an MD/Senior Partner on Linkedin, and then find their email, reach out, and ask to meet in person or talk over the phone. During the conversation, I generally ask about their experiences in the industry and at the end, I subtly hint that I am looking for an internship by asking something like "What could I do to put my self in the best position to get an
26 Dec 2018
So I just sent out an email to an analyst that I met and got coffee with over winter break inquiring about a potential summer internship. In the email, I messed up one of his coworkers names. So say the guy I was sending the email to name was Rick, the VP was Tom, and the MD was Paul. In the email I said, I would love to work under you, Rick, and Paul. How do I go about fixing this? Should I just leave it? There is no way that he wouldn't notice this.

To set the scene, earlier this morning I was doing some modelling for the boss but played around with the spreadsheet which ultimately led to me making several stupid mistakes - for example, a buy back was showing that a company purchased more than 100% of the volume for the day. Nonetheless, I was striving to get the work done efficiently and had to go back to him several times to fix it up. I then received an email from the boss saying that my work was not up to scratch this morning and that it was early days (been in the industry for 2 months) and that I can expect a huge learning curve so he doesnt want to be too judgemental.. Here are some things that he said and is the gist of the email:

Just curious what everyone's opinion is on asking why bank X didn't give you an offer after a superday. I think I've read on here before that people only ask for feedback if they think the interview really went terribly, but what if you personally knew someone at the bank (e.g. analyst who was in your fraternity) would you reach out to that guy and ask him if he knew why they didn't extend you an offer? How are you supposed to figure out what to work on for future interviews without knowing where you messed up? I get that the fit might just not be there, but that can't always be the case

Hey guys. I barely started working at an office and find the amount of unnecessary emails overwhelming. I find that I have to go back and forth with some co-workers because they didn't specify the exact day or because they wrote a long-winded email that doesn't make sense. I talked to some mentors I had and they mentioned to only respond to the emails that have priority. Likewise, they also mentioned to have some templates in gmail to just crank out whenever they're needed. What are some ways you all deal with the daily glut of emails you get during the week?

I was going to start getting on the network drive again and has a few questions. Is it bad to BCC several people the same e-mail? What if they are the same firm? Different firm? Is there a good way to start / structure the e-mail? So far I know this, -Keep it short for the initial contact less than 5 sentences -be honest with them. So would something like this be ok "My name is XXX XXX and I noticed you were a banker at XXX. I have a high interest in that firm when it comes to investment banking and was wondering if you could spare 10 or 15 minutes to talk with me. I want to learn more about

I recently had a superday at a regional BB for an SA IBD position. Yesterday I had a phone interview with an MD that went well and at the end of the interview they used language that seemed really positive to me. They really encouraged me to call them back personally if I was required to make a decision by any other firms and also said that they are going to move as fast as possible to make decisions. He also said I was a very talented individual. Finally, someone else who has been involved in the recruiting process emailed me almost immediately after and said to please let him know if I get any other offers. He also said they would let me know within the next few weeks (I went through appication process early as I was a semi target schooler)

I have ended each day for the last 4 years with the coveted "In-Box Zero". A friend and I were talking earlier today about how he can be better organized with his email and I thought he might not be the only one. Here is how I approach email and achieve in-box zero every night. This approach might not work for everyone, and that's okay, it took me trying several different ideas before I formed the one that worked for me. Feel free to take parts of this and parts from another system to form your own strategy for dealing with email. And before you start throwing Monkey Shit...I know that this won't work for everyone. ------ Filing System

I had dinner at my cousin's family friend's place about three months ago (I even followed up with a handwritten thank you note), he is very high up in a bank here in Japan (he's American), and I think he would be a good contact to get in touch with about a job in banking/business in general in Japan. I have the main part of the email written explaining that I want to remain in Japan for work (after I finish my current job) and that I'm wondering if he has any contacts, etc. But I don't know how to start it off. I feel as if "Hi, Mr. XXXXXX, we had dinner together three months ago" wouldn't

Does anyone know the email format for JPMorgan? I have an alumni's name, say John Z. Doe, what would his email be? I feel like I've tried every combination in an email verificator, but nothing works. JP Morgan Email Convention When contacting someone at JP Morgan (excluding retail), there are a few email formats that are used. In general, you can try the following: If employee started awhile ago (5+ years), use: first.X.last @ jpmorgan.com If employee started later, use: first.middleinitial.last @ jpmorgan.com or first.middinitial.last @ jpmchase.com The middle initial could also be a "x" or

I recently accepted an offer with another firm so of course I had to contact other firms that I was in the middle of the process with. DB was one of these banks and I was already scheduled for a superday. I alerted alumni and my first round interviewers a few days ago and was asked to also alert HR. I sent HR an email a few days ago (superday was today), but never got a response. I then proceeded to call this person multiple times but she didn't answer and her voice mail was full!

When to use last name and first name in an email? Here is an example: To someone who graduated from my school say 2 or 3 years ago. I sent him an email inquiring about an internship using the formal Mr. Smith. In his reply he was very friendly and signed as John. (say it's John Smith) I began my response with Dear John, but now that I think about I probably should have continued to use Mr. Smith. So my question: Should I have continued to use Mr. Smith? When is it appropriate to write an email using first name? John Smith was 2 years older, but should I use last name with someone who is the

In discussions for a job. I had a written assignment and I think I did very well in it, to the point that a fresh set of eyes next day made me think I didnt even write it. Anyway, I sent it off, and got an immediate response about how she'll get back to me this week for interview dates. Nothing so I emailed twice two days later. Got this response: "I havent had feedback. Please give me some time until next week" Now, that doesnt sound great too me. Perhaps I was a little pushy. I should say that the recruiter is Indian and based in India for some reason even though the job is NYC (big

Hi fellas and ladies, I'm in the process of reaching out to alumni from my university for informational interviews. As many of you know, the response rate isn't perfect (I'm batting at about 25% currently). It's been about a week now since I sent out my initial round of emails. I'd like to be a little more aggressive in my networking and send a second email to the individuals who didn't respond. I realize that many of them might just not be interested in speaking with me, but I'm hoping that at least a few of them didn't respond only because they might have been too busy last week, frustrated

Hey guys quick question: I had a AC last month for a graduate role in sales at a BB.

Supposedly I was 12th percentile... ya that bad. Is there any point in emailing the MD I interviewed very well with? If so, any suggestions on what to say? Or is the whole thing just dead and I should move on? Thanks

Hey everyone, help on this situation would be appreciated. I got an email from GS today saying they are interested in interviewing me for something. Thing is I just noticed my phone sends people multiple emails even though I only click send once. It did that to GS when I sent them a reply.. it sent the HR girl 7 emails (the same emails, 3 with the message and 4 with the message and attached resume)!! I'm not sure what happened but there was a technical error. After I found this out I sent her an email saying my Gmail had technical issues which is why she received the same email 7 times and apologies.. what would everyone here advise me to do? I haven't heard back from her. Although it's only been a day most people respond quick in banking.

Also which one would be the most practical for working in finance. I get it that it makes probably little difference, however I just want to make every detail as good as possible. Thank you!

ToneCheck is a free Outlook plug-in that analyzes your outgoing email messages for tone. It's designed to point out when you're, well, being a dick. If nothing else, it might be worth installing just for a good laugh. Far more useful, in my opinion, is a tool introduced for Gmail that prevents you from sending email when you're too wasted to complete a few math questions. Mail Goggles pops up after

A few weeks ago I reached out to an alumni about a real estate investment analyst position (boutique/MM). She was very helpful and spent a lot of time talking to me and giving advice. After that, she personally reviewed my resume, and sent it to the recruiter for the firm. In her email she said I would be an excellent candidate...yada..yada. She put in a nice word with the recruiter and told the recruiter to give me a phone call. I didn't hear back from the recruiter for two weeks, so I sent a follow-up email and CCed the alumni, still no response. Should I try to call the recruiter this week
