No. Certainly trim if need be and make sure you look clean, but if you plan to have a beard at the job, you should keep it.

Nah. I work with FS clients and never had a problem with a cleanly trimmed beard before covid but at this point they’re pretty common.

If it looks as bad as Jack Dorsey's, I'd highly recommend you trim it, but otherwise rock the beard. -An MD who has rocked a beard barring one shave per year since the age of 26

I read a dozen articles on whether or not I should shave my beard (full and neatly groomed) while I was interviewing. Most articles said something to the affect of, “times have changed, Beards are more accepted, you do you, do you even want a job that doesn’t accept your beard?” I listened and kept the beard. I didn’t get single a job offer until I shaved…don’t know if there’s a connection but maybe beards aren’t more accepted? In the end the beard just wasn’t worth it. If you got the job though then you should feel confident that they are okay with your facial hair.

Do not under any circumstances. I’ve had one the whole time nobody cares and we’re mostly remote anyways. I’ve kept mine 3.5 years here just be good at your job.

Honest, sincere question: is this your first “actual” job? I promise I’m not trolling you or winding up to slap you or anything. Just trying to understand something before I offer my advice.

How tough is it to break into Private Banks (Europe) in an investment role out of undergrad?

Is it better to work in other institutions as an investor or in a family office and try to join later as a more experienced analyst, or do a Masters and try again in the next years?

I worked abroad as an intern during the summer of 06 in an African country. My assignment was to work with the local Government on corporate partnerships to help with water conservation. I didn't see the final outcome by the time I left. I later found out my efforts were reworked which led to a private company drying up most of the local community wells and loading stores with bottled water at a cost. I still think about it til this day, especially the friends I met who lived in the villages.
