I'm a sophomore at a non-target applying for some IB Summer analystat and (both of these are catered to sophs/juniors). I'm a double Econ/Chem major, 3.98 , VP of my school's Economics and Business society and I've got tons of scientific research behind my back.
Question is, what do these big firms look for when selecting summer analysts? Do they look closely at rec letters?
One more thing: each and every one of them has this "Must have demonstrated a strong interest in financial markets" and I'm not sure how to convey that.
On a totally unrelated note, have a great new year :)
