    People may be developing bad habits, but their past behavior is the best way of assessing what their behavior will be like in the future.

    What Happens To Our Economy As Millions Of People Lose The Habits Of Hard Work?

    Simply put, job growth is not keeping pace with population growth--specifically, the growth of the labor force which is generally defined as the population between the ages of 18 and 64. So what happens to the economy as millions of people never acquire the habits of hard work or lose them due to chronic joblessness?

    Prominent Permabull Says Correction Not Over Yet, Expect "Final Capitulation"

    "The strong stock market rally during the last few days has pushed the S&P 500 near its highest closing level since the correction began in late August. This has boosted optimism that the recent selloff may be ending.

    I worked at Blackmore Partners (Less than a year)


    A lot of exposure if you work on deals - Gain insight into different industries - Work with outside senior level executives on looking into company financials and putting deals together - Every few days you get the chance to interact with an IB, broker or PE firm. - The MD and the Deal Partner both have many years of experience in the industry. You can always learn from them. Most people in the office are recent grads or people still in school. So overall it's a fun office when it's not busy. There isn't a lot of hard skills you can learn. But the overall experience can be useful when you look for the next job.


    Strict hours from 8 to 5. But I heard it's more flexible now. Some senior interns will be asked to lead the newer interns, this can be uncomfortable for some people. Not everyone at BMP will get to work on deals. If you are new and do not have much clue about what's going on, you will most likely be supporting others. But even if you work on deals, the work is not always that exciting.

    Advice to Management

    Most interns do appreciate the chance to get some exposure. I would advise the management to make the interns feel more appreciated in return. The new policy on flexible hours is a good start. Advice to income interns: if you are extended an offer and choose to accept it, please look up "Private Equity Independent Sponsor". The sooner you understand BMP's business model, the sooner you will begin working on deals.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Blackmore Partners in May 2015.


    Very simple, had an initial phone screen, then a follow up call on skype with a current intern. Finally the managing director called to ask 2 simple questions and offered me the job. Process took all of 5 days and then asked me how fast I can start
