I dual majored in Math and Econ. Graduated cum laude. I work part time minimum wage. Get a fucking job and stop bitching about how it's all 4chan's fault that you're a fuckup.
Get a job and take some responsibility. The job market is hard for skilled jobs right now. Work hard, pay off any loans, and keep looking for better jobs. This is the only way to come out on top when the jobs come back.
They certainly won't be handing out the next biggest best jobs to people who sat on their ass blaming others about how they didn't find work.
There are only three ways to land a decent job in finance. Go to a top school and use on-campus recruiting, go to a top business school and use on-campus recruiting, networking. Did you do any of the above?
>>1075908 If you didn't get the memo, banks and financial firms are making it their hiring policies NOT to hire finance grads. They want applicants with STEM and liberal arts degrees because apparently they bring in more "out of the box" thinking
are you retarded? Many commercial and 'big' banks still want finance and accounting majors? No sensible recruiting manager is gonna say "hmm you majored in Women's Studies and Gender Politics, you'd definitely be a good fit for our analyst position"
And this guy basically told you how everything works.
I think it's nice that you want to get into Lockheed (that's a pretty dece idea). But they might not have any positions where you fit right now, so you have to send more applications to a variety of places. One target is not enough. Look at Lockheed's subcontractors, look at other companies in the sector, look at suppliers, look at buyers, look at investors. Apply to all of them. But make it targeted, study the industry and make every application unique and say how you could contribute the best to that particular part of the industry. Good luck anon!
We used to hire mostly finance and accounting majors, but that diploma has been watered down so much in the last 15 years that it is too risky to hire. STEM (particularly engineers) are a safer bet, though we have to offer more than we used to since they are harder to recruit.
