Networking / Breaking in
Heres the deal fellas. I spent 5 years in the Marine Corps and did a few Iraq and Afghan trips and called it quits. I now have finnished my Associates applied to several schools and got accpeted into a semi target. I am currently interning at a real estate investing firm it was the best I could do networking from a community college and still working fulltime. So here is my question. I will be quitting my job now and focusing completely on school and networking. My main goal is to finally land a BB offer in NYC. Will taking internships in my regional area at banks that are MM or smaller hurt my chances significantly? I have also networked alot this summer while interning and met many people who work in my area who absolutely love it and say that NYC isnt all its cracked up to be and this area is just as profitable. Are these guys just unhappy in 2nd place or is there some weight to what they say? One last question and I will quit. How are the exit opps coming from regions such as Washington DC, Houston, Atlanta? Will I still be competitive for some of the more sought after exit opps? Thanks for any help.
