Where were you 20yrs. ago today? Do you remember? I do. I’ve still got the WSJ from that day.
I had just started at Stanford and was just beginning to know my way around and hadn’t yet learned who Fama was.
I vividly remember walking into the computer center (that was when we all didn’t have our own PCs, if you can believe it) and seeing 2nd years headed to Wall Street talking about the crash and how it was going to affect their job offers. Some had started working on their resumes because they had already been told their job offers were going to be pulled.
Did I say I-banking? I meant consulting.
McKinsey, here I come!
