Applying to internships that are in "non traditional" financial centers?
How many of you apply to internships that are in "non-traditional" financial centers? We all know NY, London, Frankfurt, Zurich, HK, etc... as being the cream of the crop but how many of you apply to other places?
I'm filling in this off-cycle internship application form for Goldman and there are lots of different locations:
ex: Tel-Aviv, Johannesburg, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Boston and Philadelphia.
Do you think that I have a better chance at getting an internship if I apply to one of these? Will there be less fierce competition? I was thinking of applying to at least 1 of these (out of 3 total). Not that these places aren't good but I'm guessing the competition to land an internship is smaller in Johannesburg than in New York.
What do you guys think?
