I don’t have many friends and I don’t have a best friend.. this really weighs on me.

I had a couple close friends who ended up being very poor friends so I cut them off.. at this point I’m not sure if I even know how to be a friend or how to make one.

Hello everyone, currently I’m an analyst in a boutique life science strategy firm in Boston and wanting to break into IB.

I’ve been considering a MBA, but given the current COVID situation and not wanting to stop work for 2 years, would a part-time MBA be of any benefit to break into IB? Happy to discuss in DM. Thanks in advance!

2nd Interview for Sr TPM (AMZN L6) role — flow was too easy (recruiter was more intense!). My interview was led by a direct report to the hiring manager I was scheduled to meet with.

I can’t help but feel that the decision had already been made by the hiring manager not to proceed. I definitely appreciate the practice but it definitely has a sting to it.
