With that response I really hope nobody here is your hiring manager. Barclays gave decent advice.

Barclays gave great advice, but you’ve proved that your inferiority complex fits perfectly for PE so run w that in interviews. Apologies if you can’t hear me from even further below in the tables

I’m asking for thoughts on this as a concern to recruiting, and maybe people have insight as to certain funds / categories of funds that give less bearing to Alma Mater, or if it’s even a concern at all. Good troll, Barclays. Almost couldn’t hear you from the bottom of the league tables.

Agreed. Barclays has it on the money... OP, you’re unnecessarily picking a fight. Quite immature, if you ask me

How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?
