MBB - what to buy before starting

Anonymous A asked on Aug 28, 2019 - 1 answer

I am starting at one MBB in the US (west coast) in a couple of weeks. What should I expect to be given by the firm in terms of laptop, phone, carry on bag...? What would you suggest for me to buy to get ready for the job and travelling?

Hi,

The firm will give you: laptop (with privacy screen), phone (with cover and privacy screen) + bag where to put laptop and documents + paper, pens, pencils, and all office stuff

What you should buy:

- Solid, high-quality luggage: you'll use it literally every-day, thus you don't want it break after the first month :)

- Backpack: business-like, if you don't want to put the laptop in a bag that you have to carry on one of your shoulders or by hand

- Suits and a lot of shirts :)

That's what comes in my mind
