Breaking into equity research - Graduating senior from a non target
well I am a graduating senior from a non target, with two internships under my belt, one is on the research side for a big wealth management firm and the other was an overseas opportunity in africa in which I might add was a great experience. I am looking to get into equity research and will start applying during fall recruiting. Any ideas on what these recruiters might look for. Note that I didn't have a summer analyst position in equity research but I do have research background, so will that be used against me in some sort of way??
