Lehman Brothers? I'm sorry, what?

I don't know what investment banking is, but I am starting
to think that I could learn to be interested in it. I mean, if
everyone else is doing it, I should do it, too, right? I mean,
there is a reason why it's such a popular career choice? It's
because they're passionate about it, and if so many people
can be and are passionate about investment banking, well,
I guess I could learn to be passionate about it, too!

This is a joke right? Because, otherwise, I've got this bridge, and all the cool kids are jumping off of it.

There's truth to it, though. If so many people seem to be going for it and you're curious, research what it's all about. Be well informed about the daily work, the lifestyle, the hours, the career path. Find out what makes some people passionate about it, what makes other people think it's boring as hell, and figure out how it would work for you. Seek out and talk to people who are doing it. Get an internship early on if you think it might be for you.
