My school is having a career fair where there will be quite of a number of first tier financial firms. I am looking to get an internship next summer, and want to secure a few interviews at this fair. My major concern is that myis pretty low (below a 3) so I won't put it on my resume. There will probably be at least 50 kids with a 3.5+ also trying to secure one of these spots, so obviously competition will be fierce. Anyone have any strategies to neutralize recruiters' attacks on my low . I know it sounds ridiculous, but surely is not everything and people have gotten jobs before with low GPAs. All I want is to just secure an interview.
I am looking to work in equity, S & T or prop, not ibanking. Dream firm would be Capital, and I know that their interview process is very intense and they really test analytical and problem solving skills. This is where I am pretty certain that I can outperform other applicants. I just need to somehow overcome my to secure that first interview, and I will be able to take it from there.
Any advice would be appreciated
