Northwestern Mutual internship before junior year?OCR didn't work for me and I've been applying for internships non-stop since my summer break started a couple weeks ago. I still don't have any solid summer plans yet and the only interviews I have right now are for NWM, a marketing intern position with a small start-up, and a social media/... 3 years 2 weeks
BP Trading Simulation?I'm registered for a BP trading simulation for sophomores tomorrow and I was just wondering what to expect. I know that there's an introduction to commodity trading before the actual simulation, but am I expected to know details about the industry already? 3 years 3 months
sophomore resume - no work experience, low gpaHi guys, I'm a sophomore applying for summer internships. My gpa's low enough that I'm not listing it on my resume and I don't have any work experience, so I know I'm at a huge disadvantage from the start.

Can some one describe the levels of Fluency with...yeah, my chinese professor told me that I'm conversationally fluent (I'm learning how to read/write right now, but I'm in the course sequence for native speakers so we've already covered a good 500+ characters) but I'm just worried that if I put that on my resume the assumption is that I'm fluent... 3 years 4 months
How to network?Thanks! One more question - would it help my case if I listed my 1st and 2nd year GPA (well, 2nd year GPA to date) to show a trend of improvement?

Can some one describe the levels of Fluency with...I grew up speaking Chinese and English, so I'm a native speaker when it comes to Mandarin.
