The QUESTION: Perspective for Second Year Job Seekers

By: Rishi Kumar ‘14  |  march, 2014

“No idea!” you answer with a polite laugh. Trust me - when answering the QUESTION, it’s important to add the polite laugh. Otherwise, the ensuing conversation is awkward.

There’s been a lot of talk about inflation in iBid – it seems that each quarter classes cost significantly more points than they did the year before. Bid strategies like the one the second year recommended with me would seem to give credence to that talk. But, how could inflation exist in a system where the number of bid points that students have to spend is fixed from year-to-year?
