Hello Everyone

Couldn't sleep much last night, so I began applying to more internships in hopes that I might get one. I've been applying since last November and haven't had any luck, and it's been quite disheartening to constantly get rejection or no follow up letters after interviews. I stumbled upon WSO and kind of just felt safe knowing that there are a lot of other people who want to become a financial professional, but might be a bit confused. I am a junior business economics and entrepreneurship double major at the University of Arizona. I am a founding member of the financial modeling club, as well as an active member of the investments club. I just want to show people what I'm capable of doing.

Cold applying won't get you very far in this industry most of the time. Are you emailing alumni from your school and talking to them? You need to network. There is a great networking guide on this site from a few years ago that I recommend you check out (just search for it).
