Looking for opinions on what kind of first internships are best/more favourable to land an IB one for the following internship? I spoke to a few people who suggested any restructuring groups while others suggested PWM. Thoughts?

Not sure how PWM is good for IB

Yeah, something like this seems optimal.

Literally any finance related internship your freshman summer is great. The standard first internship is PWM I feel like but if you're lucky and know people maybe you can swing boutique IB.

yea the person above is right, anything finance related will show that you have interest in the industry.

to add to that, there are many companies that allow freshman interns that are well known. it is pretty hard to get into some of the bigger names, but any finance sort of firm will do.
