Wanting to change careers while still in college
Hi there WSO,
Summary of my info:
* Junior at a target school
* Computer science and math double major, 3.9 , impressive tidbits (2400 SAT, etc)
* Previous software engineering with Google and
* Spending next summer in doing strategy development for a high frequency prop shop
Long story short, I'm a computer science major who's gotten sick of the west coast. The current startup scene has driven me batty, and I've been looking to steer my career away from that.
Finance has caught my eye, and I'm evaluating possible career choices. I just recently talked to a good friend of mine who is now at acoming straight out of an undergrad in electrical engineering with no finance related . He says it's great, and my interest is piqued
If I wanted to get into Ibanking when I graduate full time, what would you recommend I do? Internships for this summer are off the table, but I'm likely returning for another year of school (coterminal Masters) after this.
I'm willing to accept "don't bother" as an answer if that really is correct.
