FINANCE INTERNSHIP laura loading! No. 42937
Report: View Thread
You go to Brooks Brothers and buy two suits, six shirts, and some ties. It costs eight hundred dollars, but you don’t really care, you’re going to make $17,000 this summer.
You work hard; you’re not sure on what. You learn to use excel without ever touching your mouse. You bond with the other analysts over jokes like “poppycocking Citibank” and “poppycocking boutiques”. You stay at the office for sixteen hours, through the rain. You’re home.
Sometimes you get tired. You go to the bathroom and take a nap in the stall. When you walk back out and everyone else is diligently modeling you think holy shit.
Two months pass. You talk to your friends from home and feel superior, and sorry for them.
On the last day your MD calls you up to the executive suite. You sit down at a small table. They offer you a job.
Alone, you rest your forehead against the cool glass. You feel calm, like the grey city and sky outside. You’ve won, at life.
