Bro Asks College Recruiter If Accounting Job Will Kill His Love LifeS

BroBible says this email has been making the rounds "among the #financebros of New York," and its easy to see why: After all, they too were once aspiring #financebro being forced to choose between love and lots of money.

The only context you need is that the email was written by a UW-Milwaukee undergrad looking for work in accounting, and directed at a female recruiter he met during a career night at school.

The crux of his concern is that working for one of the Big Four audit firms would mean having to give up on finding love.

"I mean, I like money(as do most females) but love is...great," concedes the 25-year-OLD.

On the plus side, at least that zit on his lip wasn't a cold sore. Whew.

Hey REDACTED,

We talked a couple weeks back at the UW-Milwaukee accounting night. (I was the one looking for equity research positions and had a zit on my lip that could have passed for a cold sore. Lol. Whew. It was not. You're probably like, "uh.. What?" Maybe that helps you recall, maybe not. Not completely important, I suppose.

Anyways, if you have a chance here is my question: (background first) I interviewed with BDO and Baker Tilly today, two firms that seem like good places to work, I believe they don't kill you like a big 4. Tomorrow I have an interview with Deloitte :O somewhere I thought I've always wanted to work. Obviously I don't have an offer so this is all hypothetical thinking, but if I get the job, the reality of the situation is that I'm getting old. 25. I know you can't force love and I know it just comes when you're not looking, but would working for a big four completely squash any possibilities for potential relationships if one came along? Is working for a big four a potential career - love trade off? I mean, I like money(as do most females) but love is...great :) What are your thoughts?

Thanks!
