Intern Return Offer Rate
I am an incoming Full Time Analyst, but I just wanted to write this because I sympathize with all of the interns coming into this mess. I think this summer might possibly have the lowest return rates ever given due to the drop in economic activity and the sheer size of the intern classes that were selected based off of the strongest economy the US has ever had. I know you guys all worked hard to get to this point and I hope it works out. Be sure to be extra prepared during the virtual internships- ask a lot of intelligent questions, take great notes, and try to get on calls with every analyst/associate/VP etc on your team so they can all vouch for you when it comes time for making decisions on the offer. Also, do lots of self studying on technical questions/they ask you to put together a presentation quickly so you arent caught off guard.
Anyway, I think competition will be extremely tough this year for the interns given the virtual program- PLUS the deterioration in the economy will make it difficult for group heads to sign on many analysts for next year. Good luck everyone!
