It's official. I've worn a suit more times since coming to London Business School in August than I did in all of 2006. Suddenly, buying another suit before coming here (effectively doubling my smart business wardrobe) seems like a smart idea. Insider tip: Hugo Boss suits are practically free in Germany when compared to U.S. prices.
I just got home from Bank of America in Canary Wharf, where the Finance Club had organized a trading floor visit and panel presentation. It was a very informative event, capped off with a small networking event with a few London Business School alums and some others. I love networking; the shrimps were delicious.
In talking with some of my fellow students, it seems as we get exposed to more and more careers, some people are getting more and more confused. Those who had tunnel vision about their path after school are now having doubts, and those who had no idea what they wanted to do, well, they still have no idea what they want to do. Process of elimination seems to among the more popular methods of the undecideds, so I'm sure things will become clearer as the term moves on, as long as the professional clubs here continue to put on great speaker series, panels and company visits. I think I better get used to wearing a suit.
