How long did it take you to get a real job during/after college?



I know that I will be denied from a lot of places given this economy, just wondering how many applications y'all put in and how long the wait was.

Not Money board, there's not enough people over there.

what did this internship consist of? and how long was it? I remember just filing papers and running the copy machine for hours.

I took a year off to recharge the batteries and decide if I wanted to do the law school thing.

One summer was at a somewhat well known financial services firm, the next was at a Real Estate company after I got licensed.

I want to work in IB

Lot depends on your degree. I interned as a junior, got the job offer, accepted it. Spent 2.5 more years in school through my masters then went to work.

New I wanted to go to law school about 2 years before I graduated, so I didn't seek employment.

C'mon, let me have it.

Two months once the paperwork cleared.

But that was 25 years ago.
