I recently graduated from a non-target (but reputable) business school this month but have yet to lock down a fulltimer. I'm starting to get very nervous/depressed about the whole situation since I'm going to begin paying off student loans soon.
A little background about myself...
-Graudated cum laude (3.5+ gpa)
-double major in finance and liberal studies
- 2 related internships including one at a small private equity firm working on real deals
- ,66 licenses (although these may not mean too much)
-on one of my school's sports teams
-I want to stay in the finance industry, not wealth management tho. I may reach out the but I really don't like that kind of heavy accounting.
I've had some interviews from online applications and networking. Most of them I've felt good about...but no offers. I think my interview skills and preparation are decent as well. I have no idea how some others have locked down something even though my qualifications appear better. I'm not going give up but I feel like I'm losing hope.
How have people been successful (a) getting an interview then (b) landing a entry-level offer? As much as I love the troll monkies, please reply with serious responses.... I know I'm not the only one in this situation.
