  1. Wall St is pretty short - are you willing to expand to Exchange Alley or Exchange Place? Or just Wall St?

    I don't know if it's just me, but making cold calls all day long to sell garbage stocks to elderly people is one of the last thing I would like to do in life. I did the cold call thing in a different inductry one time on a summer job and sweared I would never do it again.

    I would seriously prefer being a manual worker than that...Am I weird?

  4. i'd rather be a big trader at a prop shop than a wallstreet trader right now- not the same level of scrutiny yet.

    Stupid statements like this are the crutch of the losers. Decent connection/friends at a top firm might get you an interview that you wouldn't otherwise have, but unless you actually know what you are doing - you won't get the job. This becomes more true as the pnl responsibility grows.

    Now, if we are talking about getting an internship or as such, nothing beats being the son/daughter of an important client.
