    not really, not like the glory days of 06'



    the best years of my life will be at 35 when i can buy a boat.. my 20's are pretty useless tbh, so may aswell use them as an investment



    no, i'm a uni student.. but that's kinda the goal
    Yeah same with me ahaha
    How extroverted are you as a banker? Do you go out with your banker friends often?

    i'm naturally an extrovert, i've always been outspoken, a presenter.. i did a journalism stint at hosues of parliament interviewing MPs and what not, so i'd like to think i'm pretty confident and bold. but i guess most people working where i am have similar views of themselves.

    i go out occasionally for drinks [even though i don't drink] just to socialise, but i'm not really interested in the night life/clubbing etc.. as i don't feel comfortable in those environments. unless it's ever for a client or could help foster a business relationship, i'm not really one for that lifestyle.

    Do you think introverts can do well in finance (IB-> Hedge fund)?
    Like I can talk confidently and present stuff and make friends but I'm not naturally someone who talks a lot and has a lot of banter.

    i don't think anyone cares whether you're introverted or extroverted.. the question becomes.. "would i like to sit with this guy for x hours a day", given your whole life basiaclly revolves in and around the office.. your team essentially becomes your family.. so they have to like you.

    those are analyst hours, genearlly your first 2-3 years within the industry.. after which it improves marginally if you were to stay on. but tbh the associate on our team doesn't leave until 11pm-12am anyway.. so make of that what you will.

    Okay, I want to be an IB as well so I have a few questions (Thanks, if you reply)

    Gonna start off with some personal questions:
    1. What A-Levels did you do, and what grades did you achieve?
    2. What Uni are you studying at and what course do you do?
    3. What extra-curricular do/did you do?
    4. Do you enjoy the work you do at the internship?
    5. Is being in the office fun?
    6. What do you do in the office?
    7. Why don't you continue being an IB till hours decrease as you progress? Or does 'x' pay more or do you prefer the hours or what?
    8. You only have weekends off because it's an internship right? Because I read you work every day, even bank holidays.
    9. Do you get bored easily and tired? I don't really like sleeping anyway but is the job boring?

    Lastly, any tips for people starting year 12?
    e.g. networking, EC, PS etc.

    Thanks if you (or anyone) can answer these questions.
