How to break into finance from Stanford
Essentially the title. I'm an incoming freshman looking to pursue a career in Investment Banking and Private Equity in New York City, and I've heard the opportunities for recruiting/placement here are quite poor in comparison to how well Stanford places in fields like tech and medicine. To overcome this, what orgs should I join, what should I major in, what resources can I utilize, where can I contact the alumni network, how and when should I know for certain I want to do finance, what should I focus on (grades vs. clubs vs. interview prep) etc.? Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all so much! For context I'm non-diversity and I have literally zero experience with finance stuff and also no connections.
