Young Money: Inside the Hidden World of Wall Street’s Post-Crash Recruits von Kevin Roose

Kevin Roose spent three years following eight young Wall Streeters in an attempt to find how the 2007 crash – and its aftermath – influenced the financial industry. Young Money paints a decidedly grim picture of junior analysts who find themselves on a non-stop rollercoaster of all-nighters and extreme stress, while earning six-figure incomes.

  • Graduates considering a job on Wall Street
  • People already working as analysts on Wall Street
  • Anyone curious about life in the belly of the financial beast

Kevin Roose is the author of The Unlikely Disciple, and has written for the New York Times and New York Magazine. He is currently senior editor and co-executive producer for the ABCUnivision joint venture, Fusion.

Wall Street hiring is aggressive and begins at college.

Scoring a job on Wall Street seems like a rare honor. But in fact, companies on Wall Street are as eager to hire a smart young person right out of college as graduates are to make it to Wall Street.

Wall Street firms begin their search early to ensure they get only the best graduates, and that means bagging them before they’ve finished their degrees.

Well before other fields even consider setting up interviews, Wall Street firms start pursuing young minds on university campuses.

As early as the fall of their senior year, most Wall Street firms inform student applicants about job openings. Take a look at the statistics: the majority of Ivy League graduates who have job offers prior to graduation are going into the financial sector. That’s 46 percent in Princeton in 2006 and 28 percent in Harvard in 2008.

The best Wall Street companies spare no expense on enticing the smartest young minds and ensuring the hiring process is as simple as possible. But although it’s an easy process, it’s also aggressive.

Top firms hold presentations on campus, often boasting Jay Z-style promotional videos. One presentation by Morgan Stanley at Penn’s Wharton Business School spouted phrases like “Boundaries will be shattered,” and “In the finance world, every day is a new day,” to a pop-rock soundtrack.

As well as the presentations, companies also provide interview workshops, treat potential candidates to expensive dinners and follow up with phone calls. The interest they show in exceptional students is comparable to “polite stalking.”

So do any students actually fall for these gaudy presentations? You’d be surprised.
