I'm a rising sophomore from Emory University wrapping up my last few weeks working with a Boutique Investment Bank in NYC. Its a small firm that has several veterans from BB's and they have been tremendously helpful in teaching me the fundamentals of the business and I feel like I have gotten a lot out of my 6 weeks here.
My question is how do I go about securing an internship at a BB or Boutique bank. I'm pretty sure I would like to work in IBD as a summer analyst at one of these firms, but I'm open to exploring other areas such as ECM or AM as well (considering I'm now starting my sophomore year I feel I have this flexibility). I've been meeting with some alumni throughout the summer trying to get my name out there and having informational phone calls/coffee meetings.
Any advice for how to transition these types of connections into potential interviews?
