“That new analyst we just hired will definitely be a STARR.”
“But that one from last year is turning out to be a TWAT so far.”
I looked at my 2 banker friends in confusion.
“Um… what are you talking about? I’m assuming those are acronyms?”
They looked at me like I was crazy.
I explained that I had already left the industry, so I was no longer up on all their jargon.
But my one friend didn’t accept that as an excuse.
He replied, “The easiest way to predict someone’s success on the job is to figure out whether he/she is a STARR or a TWAT early on.”
Hook, line, and sinker… now they had me.
“OK,” I said, “Stop building this up and just give me the full explanation.”
