Well, someone else actually just PM'd me asking the same question, lol. I actually post frequently in the Stock Market thread we have on here, if you ever want to come in and read up about our opinions and everything, doomsday scenarios and why the world isn't as good as it once way, you know that kind of stuff,



Btw:



Think about the credentials of Candidates who have career's in this company. Now imagine what kind of credentials and accomplishments of those in Goldman Sachs, cause I guarantee you Goldman Sachs rules the world.

If you really want to work in the financial sector, you really ought to take the time and understand what we're talking about. It's how everyone in the industry speaks, especially in GS. You wont learn an environment of dialogue inside the covers of a textbook. You gotta go to the environment and fumble, and learn it. Most office monkeys just read their finance textbooks and probably have no clue what their managers are discussing.

hope its not a repost:


BTW why else would GS get paid 100 cents on the dollar when AIG went bust, where banks like Lehman brothers went down the drain and didnt get a penny. Also, kind of funny how the past two CEOs of GS went straight to the white house after their careers at GS, funny how that works our right? i think not.

All those courses will not get you anywhere, but they will however build you a solid foundation for everything else youll learn. Honestly if you want to learn turn on the news, start reading the news paper, do some research on your own etc.. thats how I learned what I know. See what interests you in the market at pursue that

GS is the dirtiest, slimiest group out there. Take a job there and you might run the world or go to jail forever.

Companies like the ones in the title expand and contract on a whim and they axe off large branches at a clip. You mean NOTHING in an organization like that. You're much better off getting into a boutique firm that you've likely never heard of. You'll have a better quality of life and much better job security, and likely make more money in the process. Just don't expect to toss off your graduation cap and expect to be VP in year one. I can't tell you how many of the recent crop I've seen who walk in expecting to have their own assistant and corner office.

This is the only finance textbook that I think actually speaks in the right dialogue. It's a miserable read, but the content is really good. http://www.amazon.com/Financial-Acco...dp/0324651147/

As far as the second paragraph, all true except IMHO; there are much better uses of your talents, time and resources at that point that working for a large financial services company.
To be honest, I could never see myself working undersomeone, cause there's always someone to talk to. I just want to make enough and leave it in the bank and go travelling for the rest of my life. I got one life, and I don't really care for seeing the innards of GS's concrete and glass castle for it's eternity. The world is a much better view

Maybe on a ship... on the Riveria.... daydreams
UofA or UofT, it has to be one lol and I'm almost 100% sure it's not the Frenchy one lol.

Yep, that's what I said early. But thanks for a personal attack on me, that was called for. Classy

almost as classy as telling students that if they dont make 1 million dollars investing by the time theyre out of college then investment banks wont be interesting in them

not everyone has a large chunk of money to play with when theyre in college. reality check man

If you did manage to actually read my posts, I said if they wanted a career reaching high-up in the corporate, real-world experience is much more valid than high GPA (as they were frustrating about earlier on in the thread). I've also said in those posts that these were just my opinions. And yes, I believe your point was already taken up by another poster, so tell me why is that you're reviving this issue again?

To attack me? Do you not like me? I don't really care, tbh. How about you keep doing what you're doing, and I'll keep doing what you're not doing. Seems to be working just fine for me. Stay Classy. Back-off with the personal attacks that were uncalled for, okay? Because, truth is, you have no idea how I started up.

If you want to make a million, start with a hundred million. I'm pretty sure an unemployed guy in a bathrobe living in a doublewide with a free trial to bloomberg can make 1%.
