I apologize for this non professional question. I've used this website before and it's been the most helpful thing to me during recruitment. I hope this sort of question is allowed.
I'm nearing my 4th month at an MBB firm as associate/BA. I couldn't be prouder of myself for reaching this level. However, ever since I joined, I'm struck by this feeling that I'm out of place. Don't get me wrong, I like the work and will perform every task diligently. What I mean is - I feel like I don't belong to the firm's social side. Everyone here is too "posh" for me, it's so alienating. I rarely ever relate to my colleagues small talks about fashion shows or new luxury restaurants. People do seem accustomed to a certain higher "class", and its hard to adapt. Im not sure if I can get used to this environment.
I get why consulting prestige is so alluring now. But I just can't help but feel too inadequate. Is this normal? How do I acclimate better?
