    And personally I think that investment banking is poor mans play xD Programming is where the money is (apparently)
    Lol not in the UK.. Maybe in the US tech hubs, salaries here in the UK are pretty atrocious in comparison to the US. Even then, most US top tech guys hit an income ceiling whereas the finance lads and ladettes continue to outpace them income wise. Software guys can make decent coin at quant hedge funds/prop shops tho.

    The only real way to f you money is by taking on huge risk in investing or by starting your own conpany.

    In all honest all this is relative. A £100,000 may seem like a huge salary for some but a rediculously small one for others

    Who's talking about £100k? That's not exactly insane for the careers we're on about here - i.e. high finance/top tier tech.

    It was an example, I could have said the same with half a million or even a million pounds.

    Lol no. Going to Warwick this year for Data Science (Maths, Stats and CompSci).

    Ofc, IB or consulting is the goal. Would be a nice change from helping others get into it to me landing the offers myself - hit rate in terms of advice has been 90% so far, we shall see.
    woah... that is impressive af

    Yeah, it's cool how all these people I helped are now in the industry or getting internships in the industry. Although I guess it skews my perception of how hard it is to get into these gigs

    Out of interest, what do you mean by "helping" into the industry? Not like you can do interviews/AC's for them.

    Practice interviews, CV advice, practice AC exercises, practice case studies etc.. Of course the ultimate performance is down to them, not disputing that. 'Help' = advice.

    Ok, so basically you did nothing of importance and did what everyone does for someone they know who has an interview coming up. Thanks for clarifying.

    Let me add this: they work 80+ hours a week and sometimes pull all-nighters. Also, they only get 2 weeks holiday a year at best.
    That sounds perfect because the guy will be paying for their plush apartment but he'll always be at work while she's balls deep with her civil service guy who finishes at 5pm every day

    Pretty obvious that they're trying to make me look like a dunce.. Of course they don't understand the full context of what I'm talking about and think I added 0 value by helping out 1 or 2 'buds', with some interview prep. Ignorance is bliss.

    Don't listen to any of the wishy washy answers on this site. Being a "banker" implies you are well paid, powerful and probably cocky... all traits are very highly sought after by the vast majority of women.

    The insecurity is real. I can confirm that my finance friends clean up very nicely when they're out - of course markets people are more free to go out than IBers. It really does depend more on your personality than your occupation.

    Occupation becomes more important to women when they start nearing 30 and that fertility time bomb is getting closer to detonation.
