HAPPY THANKSGIVING! What are we thankful for…?

With Thanksgiving comes a whole mix of emotions for most of us here at Booth. Excitement for all the fun holidays activities – whether it be the long Thanksgiving weekend, countdown to Ski Trip, the many ugly sweater parties or even the first snow of the season (which just so happened to hit Chicago this past weekend). Anxiety that finals are less than two weeks away – wait, we have grade nondisclosure… And of course, a little bit of sadness that we are almost one quarter closer to graduation and the end of this amazing business school journey.

Switching things up, Part I: From I-Banking to Tech

Before business school, I was working at Credit Suisse in their Investment Banking division. The world of banking helped me understand how big corporates do business and gave me an opportunity to meet senior management of some of the biggest companies in the world. It was a dynamic and financially rewarding job. However, having fallen in love with technology during my undergrad, I missed being involved in the next wave of technology products. While I was busy clocking 80-100 hours every week in my banking job, the world of technology was becoming more exciting with each passing day. I couldn’t stay away any longer and decided to switch careers to technology. Continue reading Switching things up, Part I: From I-Banking to Tech
