Hey everyone, I was wondering if I applied too late to have a realistic chance of securing an internship this summer at a bulge bracket or mid range investment bank/ER firm. I applied to 30 places between December 1st and December 10th and have not heard back from any yet other than a back office position at Point 72, which I am not particularly interested in. At this point i'm very paranoid I will not receive even an email, so I have been looking off the common path for positions in NYC that will advance my career.

A little more info about me: I'm a Junior studying Finance at a non target school with a 3.5 GPA, 8 months of boutique Equity Research experience, and what I considered a strong resume that was reviewed by friends of mine who have BB internships.

At this stage, you're probably too late for internships at the largest firms. From what I understand, applications for equity research/Asset Management roles at major investment banks and places like Fidelity, Wellington etc. are usually due in October and early November for juniors.

But don't worry. Recruiting is much less structured for smaller hedge funds and asset management firms, as well as for non-investment roles at all sorts of firms. Applications will probably remain open at those sorts of places for a few more months.

For some reason I was under the impression internships for ER were on a rolling basis and were last strict and early than IB. Guess I was wrong. Thank you for the reply.

Unfortunately you are most likely too late for formal BB/MM programs. As suggested above, try reaching out to alumni at smaller hedge funds.
