I'm currently a junior attending a target (ivy league) for I-banking. I was offered an unpaid/college creditin Private Wealth Management; although it is in a regional office, it will be in a big city.
Most students seeking careers in finance will have usually held several internships with finance firms by their junior year. My only previous finance-related internship is being a paid intern for the finance department of a mayor's office. Will this put me at a disadvantage when applying for actual I-banking jobs (and yes, I knowis not necessarily within the realm of what is considered to be i-banking/ )?
Is it likely I would get a full-time offer after my senior year withinternship under my belt? Or should I aim for an internship my senior year? Or apply to law school instead and then try to break into i-banking? Not that this should make a difference (but it might), I'm an under-represented minority (ie not asian/indian).
Any comments or advice?
