Leave or Stay

Would like to go to risk.What I mean is that during those meetings, which a lot is discussed. Either there is no conclusion or whenever there is, what's been discussed is not implemented.

Leave or Stay

Yes in Model Val. The problem is a lot about discussion on process rather than getting things done.

Leave or Stay

I am in the situation where the work place both bore me and annoys me, which in turns affect my overall mood down. However as it is very busy and don't see it to get better, I was wondering if it is better leave and have time to find a place somewhere else?

SuperDerivatives

I had a friend working there, and it seemed like a good starting point. It could involve a lot of programming in C# and VBA and cover on improving valuation of derivatives, exotic derivatives pricing, market data management. I believe they are the top of the Gherkin

Tell visa to agents

<t>Hi,I have found out that whenever you tell agents that you need a visa for a job, they stop contacting you. Is it wise to refuse disclosing your visa situation or "lying" about it, in order to get an interview? I've been contacted by agents for work in IBs or other big companies that can sponsor ...

How long to wait after IB interview?

You can't hold onto them like that. They'll decide when they decide. Move on and apply for more.
