This is a bit of a “random announcement” post, but I couldn’t think of a coherent way to tie all these points together.
I’ll be in China from mid to late December, and in Singapore the first week of January. I might have a few free moments and some time on nights/weekends so let me know if you’re in the area and want to meet up.
Note: I often receive many emails from readers wondering why their networking emails get ignored. The reason: it’s very easy to ignore emails, especially when you get a lot of them – meeting someone in-person is the best way to network.
So here’s your chance to do just that (assuming you live in Asia). And yes, I realize the irony of having to contact me first via email, but don’t worry, I’ll pay attention.
Anyway, if you’re in either of these countries let me know and I can give you details on locations/times and see if we can meet.
Note: Interviews / resume editing will continue as scheduled since I’ll have Internet /phone access the whole time.
Frequently Asked Questions… Answered
I’ve been seeing a lot of the same questions over and over via email, in the comments, on message boards and elsewhere. In an effort to answer these, I’ve put together a list of Frequently Asked Questions with answers to some of the most common ones.
It includes such gems as:
What are my chances of getting into investment banking?
(I must get variants of this at least 5-10 times per week)
How much can I round my GPA?
(A 3.7 vs. 3.8 really doesn’t matter…)
Are those expensive training courses worth it?
(I try to answer this in a non-biased way)
And then all sorts of random personal questions I get:
I know! You worked at UBS LA! Right? Right?
(What makes you think that?)
What are you doing now?
(Haven’t I answered this multiple times before?)
There are some common questions and categories not listed there right now, but this will improve with time as I add more and more to it.
Next week I’ll be releasing something I’ve been working on for awhile now. I’ve been getting requests for this nearly half a year now, and it will be very useful for anyone in the midst of summer internship / other recruiting.
