Too many internships and great jobs with high starting salaries for consultants, banks and corporations are a trap. “You come with a dream, and then you end up in Neverland – at McKinsey, JP Morgan and Deutsche Telekom”, Samwer told students
“. Too many people think they should do something for their resume, “Samwer said. “You must rid yourselves of it,” the 42-year-old entrepreneur called elite students to, casually dressed and in the open light blue shirt on stage back and forth wandering and a few notes posing on a flip chart: “Be yourself Your courage will fall with. each month, you work at McKinsey. “
