    As summer analysts start to arrive at investment banks for a summer of hard, hard work and intense competition for a likely diminished number of jobs, some may wonder whether there isn’t an easier alternative in life. Like – maybe – strumming a guitar on YouTube.

    It’s worked for Jess Greenberg, a student at University College London (UCL), who interned last summer at Goldman Sachs in London.


    Greenberg has her own YouTube channel with 1.1m subscribers. Her most popular video, below, has had nearly 9m views and 94,500 likes. Greenberg may not be Gangnam Style, but with YouTube allegedly paying $2k per million views, her side-hustle seems to be quite lucrative.

    Nothing but admiration for her, making the most of her *ahem* assets and managing to get a decent side hustle going.

    You do have to wonder at what point does it become detrimental to how she is perceived by clients - I'd imagine the downsides are negligible in the area of investor relations, but what about something in the area of money management?

    I don't think clients would care at all. As long as this person creates value, and not doing something inappropriate (running a youtube channel playing a guitar isn't one of those things) it's all good.

    I suppose, in a true meritocracy someone should only be measured against their on-the-job performance. Realistically however, if the CEO of a Fortune 500 company was doing the same thing, I think investors would almost certainly take issue.
