General Introduction

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone is happy and healthy during the covid-era! I am currently a student looking to gain some insight and advice that I would need to break into finance/investment banking/wealth management. Specifically, I am interested in learning about the necessary steps that I should take, the technical skills I would need and the networking approach that I should take. I am currently applying for internships and would also like some advice as to how I should spice up my resume to land an internship. My current goal is to start out as an investment/financial analyst in the near future, but of course in order to do that, I need to gather a ton of experience under my belt and I don't expect bulge brackets to even look at my app as I don't come from a target school (UC Davis). Any sort of advice is appreciated! Thanks everyone!
