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.
"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.

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?
