I’m a part time branch teller and, due to this pandemic, my limited hours were cut back even further. I have to find a second job and may settle with fast food service. I have a bachelor’s degree in finance and currently studying for the CFA level 1 in December, but just can’t seem to get ahead and find a full time position. It’s my dream to work in IB someday, but I’m losing hope. Anyone got suggestions?

I’m thinking about applying for an internal position in a different office. When and how would be a good time to ask about salary? It’s in a much higher COL city and I’m not going to waste my time if they’re not going to account for that.

If two companies have same revenue, EBITDA, industry, and exit multiple, what would cause different valuations? It would just be WC changes, tax rate, and Capex right?

What is the longest amount of time you’ve had between a verbal offer and the written? I’m going on 3 weeks since HR called me, and I know with COVID we should expect some delays, but this seems abnormally long? BB bank for context that said they needed the role filled ASAP.

Hiring managers: When applying internally, does reaching out to you actually help my application? I follow up each application with an email emphasizing interest. Is this a good idea or do most not prefer it?

Desperate enough to get out of an ops role that I’ll buck up the money for an MBA. Anyone ever hear of people having issues moving in to banking roles with a fresh MBA if they have an ops background?

With how challenging things are right now I constantly feel hopeless and stressed. Never had this much internal dialogue around anxiety before. I get stuck in my own negative thoughts. A lot. At first I didn’t think it was anything but now it’s been months, I’m starting to think it’s some sort of condition. I’m afraid it might be imposter syndrome. For those 🐠 that has gone thru something similar before, could you share your experience finding care and therapy? Any tips and advice?

Own a townhouse currently, but venturing into investment property for the first time. Are condos a good idea in Jersey city, Hoboken area? Targeting the ones without the horrendous HOA obviously. Also hearing from the realtor that the play has to be that you say it’s your 2nd home to use on weekends or something like that so you don’t end up with higher down or high interest rates that are associated with a typical investment prop from lender standpoint. Curious to know how this works.
