Rules of Success
Rule # 1: Rule # 2: Rule # 3: When something goes wrong it is your fault Think then ask You only get one chance to make a first impression

Rule # 4:
Rule # 5:

Age does not equal maturity
You never know who your white knight will be

Rule # 6:

People remember the process


Rule #1:
• • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

When something goes wrong it is YOUR fault

Don’t plan to print out the documents in the morning Don’t expect the car, plane, train to be on time Don’t assume that the package you sent in a car to your bosses house actually got there Don’t expect your computer to work Never give anyone your original document Don’t expect your boss to be able to find something you left on your desk or on his/her desk Don’t screw up the lunch order Don’t expect your alarm clock to work Don’t expect your boss to have the document you gave him/her five minutes ago Don’t expect word processing, graphics or production to complete the job by the time they told you it would be done Don’t expect the job to be right when they give it to you Always page check Always proofread AND have someone else proof, if possible Always spell check If you are ultimately responsible, DON’T ASSUME ANYONE IS GOING TO DO SOMETHING THEY SAY THEY ARE GOING TO DO!

Rule #2:
– – – –

Think then Ask

If you are asked about something:
Think about it and try to figure it out yourself Research ASK a peer ASK your boss

• • •

You only get to ask the same question twice (maybe) Write things down Resources
– Your Personal Board of Directors
• • • • People on your desk or bullpen Your mentor Your fellow interns AlumniAthlete Network

– Web resources
•; Wikipedia 8

Rule #3:
• •

You only get one chance to make a first impression

No one cares about what you have done; they care about what you do Do more than what is asked

• • • • • • • • • •

Bring the Wall Street Journal to work with you everyday
You should be the first person in and the last person to leave Hour lunch breaks are a thing of the past Always start by being conservative (i.e. dress, language, interaction) Play the social game If one thing is wrong, people discount the entire document and YOU! Most things are optional, including giving you an offer Don’t get hammered when you are out For many bankers the day starts at 5pm Always bring a pen and pad to a meeting Be (“Act”) confident

Rule #4:
• •

Age does not equal maturity

Always be the adult Learn how to manage upwards

• • •

Don’t engage in public disputes
Let your representatives (AlumniAthlete Network, human resources contact, mentor) mediate conflicts If the dynamic of your group or your experience feels weird or wrong, contact us immediately! You are not part of the Soprano family; there is no penalty for squealing


Rule #5:
• • • • •

You never know who your white knight will be

Get to know the other people in this room Have lunch with a different person outside of your group each week Get to know the people in your group by asking questions about them Get to know the other interns at your bank Introduce yourself; you have interesting stories


Talk to the professionals at the networking receptions and follow-up


Rule #6: People Remember PROCESS
• • • • • • • Every process starts with being on time Do what you say you are going to do Over-Communication is the key to good PROCESS If something will not be done on time let people know several hours / days in advance Consult someone before going around your boss Document when and what was said The sequence in which you do things is as important as what you do
