Irony of the day
I’ve always thought of high finance as being a pretty opaque profession to break into, without a clear trajectory and a lot of it’s-who-you-know. Medicine, on the other hand, is a pretty predictable path: you put in your time, you take your tests, you’re a doctor.
That’s why I was so surprised to learn from Panda that prominent VC types routinely advertise job openings on their blogs (attracting of course a massively overwhelming response). In contrast, all of the non-crappy doctoring jobs are advertised by word of mouth.
