    people think finance sounds smart and sophisticated and guarantees them a 'good' job at a bank working 50+ hours a week
    perhaps sometimes the heaviest things are not the weights we carry but our feels

    I like projecting the future and I like being right.

    Finance is about both. If you are good you get paid great and if you aren't well good luck with that son.

    Though accounting is the better degree. Any entry level job that you can get with a Finance Degree you can also get with an Accounting Degree, but the reverse isn't true.

    If you avoid big cities you have to go the management route, but there are plenty of options out there.
    Finance Degree - USAF INTEL - IIFYM - Injured Crew - KTM XCW300 - Single Track Trail Rider - NRA Supporter - Shunned from MFC - Libertarian - Pragmatist
    B: 345, S 375, D 445
    Trying to get your ideal outcome often leads to the passing up of practical alternatives that deny your adversaries theirs.

    You think Andrew Yang (your idol it seems) is talking about people like me?

    Newsflash: he's talking about people like you...the low skilled kind. I mean, you can't even get laid (I see you in every incel thread) and you want to talk to me about how my super lucrative career is going to be automated?

    Lmao lol

    Banking pays well.

    Banks have a lot of onerous compliance checks before anything can get done.

    Almost everything is done via systems which have not been updated for very long times.

    Significant time is spent on solutions/ workarounds.

    Plenty of meetings with Douchebags and tyrekickers.

    Making money is getting harder. Thanks to low interest rates, margins are thin. Fees are heading down thanks to technology and competition for price sensitive customers/ clients business.

    Risk is increasing and their will be a credit crunch hard very soon.

    Benefits are less than before. Used to be models & bottles, paid condos, business class and luxury hotels for the family to spend time with you. This is long gone.

    Oldcels are paying themselves like crazy before they get shown the door/ fired for incompetence LOL

    There is no future in banking. srs

    because it's the only profession outside of owning your own business or something that you can be pulling in an easy $300K within your first four years?

    because a few years of investment banking experience means you can move to basically any job you want?

    because you work and sacrifice for a few years and basically set yourself up for life?

    because it's the most sought out profession in the financial world and so few people can actually make it in?

    You're less than a year in if I recall. I truly hope you make it and in 3 years you're bragging about making $300k, but we shall see.

    I'm just telling you the facts, you can literally google investment banking salaries and see the progression. I'm not lying about anything. There are guys my age already making closer to 250-300K because they started much earlier. I am behind actually

    Actually sounds very interesting to me, but i'd probably like economics more as I enjoy the study of money rather than learning about actual money if that makes sense.

    Similarly I'd love to take a linguistics degree but I don't much care for learning other languages.

    That's where the money is bro. Capitalist economy rewards investment the most. The allocation of wealth for maximal productivity is greatly rewarded. Only thing to remember is investing is actually a game. That means there is no magic formula or strategy that will let you win easily. You are basically playing against other people. Investing is a zero sum situation. You're betting one thing, and other people are betting against you. It's like gambling, but more informed since it is ultimately tied to real world stuff.

    I'm 100% positive you'll be making that 300k in a couple years but to be honest most people quit banking after the 2 year mark because of the long hours and the fact that you're being treated like ****.
    At the 1 year mark you're probably spending 15 hours a day doing comps manually and turning powerpoint slides comments.
    It takes a special kind of mentality / personality to be able to cope until you reach VP status. I've seen so many go into depression / tell me that they hate their jobs but hats off to you if you're enjoying it. Ultimately, that what counts and **** what everybody thinks.

    you made it fam, PE or HF is the ultimate segway

    yeah, it's not for everyone. I'm lucky, I feel like I got in with a really good bank, culture and team. I basically exclusively do associate level work right now and I spend 75% of my time modelling so I'm actually stimulated and challenged at work. But yeah, hours can be rough. I still go to the gym after work every day so i have found a way to manage it all and I'm confident I can ride it out for as long as I want

    My younger brother studied finance for 5 years, only to find in his large home city (2mil population) there were no jobs whatsoever, so he had to relocate to a bigger city... Finding a job for him was also not easy, he looked around for 6 months only to get one interview, but yeah, he's finally made it in the finance sector and now he trades debentures (srs). He's a bit trendy and metro too, probably watches Wolf of Wall Street alot lol...
