Hey all, been lurking since I was a wee Level 1er.
Just entered overdrive for Level 3 while at the same time networking and job hunting. I managed to get three interviews and just got the call this afternoon that I didn’t make the cut after three rounds of interviews with one of the firms. That’s the second I’ve been rejected from. I’m hoping the last one pans out but I’m not holding my breath.
Now, I’m not anywhere close to giving up and given the competition for equity research jobs I’m actually pretty happy to have gotten the chance to interview at all. I’m not trying to bitch by posting this. But with the stress of the exam coming up and waiting anxiously for weeks to hear back about jobs (and then getting let down), I’m just kind of worn out.
Did it take any of you a ton of interviews before you got the gig? Any other inspirational equity research break-in stories to share? Any relief for the acute flaccidity I’m experiencing this afternoon would be much appreciated.
