One thing we talk about @wallstreetbook (join us on insta!) is how important it is to tailor your experience to the role. Are there specific types of IB where you have a unique value add? (Eg Consumer portfolio experience —> Consumer & Retail IB..... LatAm portfolio experience —> LatAm IB)

Difficult time to be job-hunting...I say keep applying and try to network around more. On the one had people may have less time for you now since the world became a giant dumpster fire, but building these connections will be key to you finding a job.

I have five years big 4. Always did well bonus and promotion wise. In between I left for IT sales to make more money but being in Boston I would of had to move for better opportunities. Now I’m back in consulting and miss the freedom of sales. Anyone in my position? I felt this way before quarantine too. The SM on my project almost got divorced so she worked so much, then she said I realized it just my life. It’s just too unhealthy. Thoughts bowlers?

One of my senior managers is a boomerang and told me she was laid off when she was 7 months pregnant about 10 years ago. I think she was a senior or manager. She was in a specific group and everybody was laid off. It wasn’t performance based. Would you work at your company again if you were laid off?
