After 250+ applications and 5 final round rejections, I’m losing hope that I’ll ever find a job. I’m graduating very soon and I’m starting to panic. I’ve spent 100s of hours prepping and studying for interviews and sometimes I’ve just gotten ghosted after the final round.
I’m not really applying of anything that is a stretch for my background and interests. I try to also diversify the firms I’m applying to (banks, HFs, prop shops etc. of varying sizes) Maybe I’m really just doing something wrong.
