What's the purpose of inhouse days? I've been invited to plenty of inhouse days at investment banks and consultancy firms. They all basically follow the same program, you have a company presentation of an MD or a partner, lunch with analysts, a case in a group under the guidance of analysts and usually dinner and drinks afterwards.
So I spend a whole day at a bank, talk to all the employees and sometimes even go out to clubs afterwards with them. I collect all their business cards, sent them a thank you note, and that's it. It always goes the same way.
I highly doubt they'll remember my name a year from now, when I need that internship. So am I correct in saying that those days are good to see whether you like the company, but are pointless for actually getting an internship/job?
