What are the odds I could convince a small firm to let me on as an intern during the off season? Does cold calling work for interning like it has for some looking for jobs?
I am coming off of active duty this fall and have almost three months of vacation saved up; we never vacation in our careers either. It would be a pretty sweet deal to have a steady income while interning. Right now my office is giving me 0 projects to work on, letting me focus on preparing to get out. I am using my time until October to network, study finance methodology, and applying to MBA/Finance programs. I have enough cash to cover being out of work for more than a year. This will allow me to intern at more than one place, building a better resume/contacts along the way.
My preference is to remain in the DC area, so I have begun researching places around here. That is how I found the oasis. Have been reading the old threads and taking notes as I plan out the next few months.
Step One: Attending the WSO Conference
Step Two: Let you know when I get there
Have a Good One,
