Since this is the first series I’ve seen that focuses on graduates working for an investment bank I thought I’d react and explain some of the scenes for the educational benefit of future applicants and those curious to learn more about the banking and finance industry. All views are my own and have been drawn from my previous experiences of working in the industry.
