BU. You're closer to the business and actually impact things like forecasts and budgets. Also get to work on the strategic finance stuff which is the most interesting. Corporate is a lot of consolidations and less value add. It's a decent place to start, and probably better than say a staff accountant. But if you have a choice, go BU.

I’d like to apologize in advance as this maybe a touchy topic for certain folks. For those that have been in the Big 4 for sometime now (i.e. was hired before this covid induced hiring spree over the past couple months), are you concerned that your market value would decrease as a result of the firms hiring people left and right? In other words, the recruiting has been excessively relaxed now compared to when there was intense competition.

Hi, where or what types of companies should sophomores & juniors apply for next summer (2022) to recruit for IB the following summer (2023)? This summer BBs wrapped up SA IB recruitment, EBs even earlier, and a fair amount of my friends missed out big time. Also, if a sophomore or junior doesn’t get a finance-related summer internship (I.e tech) and aims for an IB SA or FT position, is it harder to break in? Appreciate any advice and insight, thank you.

I recently interviewed for a role at Goldman Sachs and completed all the levels. After the final interview HR sent me a link to fill out the Compensation Questionnaire and requested for related documents. Next day, another HR called me for some clarification and told me that they are going to request for some approvals. Does this mean I can expect an offer letter? If yes, how long will that process take?

Was referred by an MD at a firm for his practice; recruiter reached out for availability - then proposed a time…I totally forgot to confirm the proposed time (which has now passed) then I misspelled her name in my panicked apology note. What a start to the day…it’s a great role too
