You know you are getting robbed when the bid-ask spread is high. I'm getting emails from recruiters presenting themselves like: "I am Mediocre Nobody finance recruiter drone based in London. I work with tier 1 investment banks and hedge funds, such as JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs, to name a few. [blah blah blah]". So what do we have here: Mr. Zero, "recruiting" for Corporation Infinity. Nothing smelly about this astronomical spread, not at all something that will rob you of your time, money (opportunity cost on the time wasted with these useless piece of shits) and self-esteem (essential for carrying on in this business).
