Ouch

last 2 week have been ugly ... I just got dinged from 2 bulge bracket I-banks 1 was right off the back and 1 I went for a super Friday... Met a couple of interesting people there... but alas nothing came out of it ... I am still waiting to hear from a boutique and a middle market bank both in NYC... I have started applying for other positions too mainly leadership programs.
I have not lost hope totally yet, I keep telling myself that if I can get to these people maybe I can actually get 1 of these jobs. Good thing is that the top candidates in my school have been offered jobs that they will most likely be taking. (Yes no more blocking)!!!
I will keep everyone posted, GOODBYE FOR NOW

School again!

Oo baby Rochester is Cold… today was the 1st day of the school’s second quarter. Reflecting back I see that I am much wiser than I was 4 months ago and have a better plan for the next 3 months then I did for the provisos 4. This quarter is especially, 12 straight weeks of classes without a break. How will I survive?
I got a call telling me that I cant join my first choice employer. I had a second round interview for an internship at arguably the best bulge bracket Investment back on Friday. I was pretty hopeful but my dreams were totally crushed by the call today. I am waiting to hear back for a second round call from some other banks, but today was especially a devastating day. HOPEFULLY TOMORROW WILL BE BETTER…
