5 Key Points to Landing an SA Internship

So, this is it for me. I accepted an offer and am done with SA recruiting. It definitely is a grueling process, but it pays off in the end with a bit of luck. Just wanted to share my advice from things I have learned throughout the process. By no means do I think I'm an expert or that I know more than the next guy. Just wanted to give back to the site.

Here are the 5 Key points that helped me land the offer:

1) Networking
If I could give one piece of advice, it'd be to set up a call and pick up the damn phone. I thought I had an "in" with the banks where I met someone at an event, got their card, and followed up with a thank you email. I now realize that doing this is simply going through the motions. When resumes are being pulled, no ones going to think "Oh, this kid sent me a great thank you email, he's getting an interview!" The places that I picked up the phone and showed my interest in a group or a firm are largely the ones that I got interviews at. Plus, it is great to be able to say first hand that you spoke to X, Y, and Z, and that they reinforced your interest in the firm.
