This is my first post and I was wondering how you guys see my chances of getting an IB position after graduation and maybe you have some advice for me on how to get there besides the general LinkedIn messages/cold calls.
I am a senior at a small non-target school that probably never moved anyone to IB. I tried to make the best out of it, so I am majoring in Econ, Finance and Cyber Defense with a current GPA of 3.95. Since I am a bit older than the normal graduate (24 years), I was able to get some work experience apart from internships, but the only relevant ones are job for the Swiss Stock Exchange (SIX), and as a Credit Analyst for a Financial Services Company. Also I am currently interning with a brokerage firm, where I am getting my FINRA licenses before graduation, to set myself a little apart from other candidates. Also I have some international experience from working in Switzerland, since I grew up there and therefore speak some other languages too.
But the real problem is that I do not have any IB experience, and no internships. I try to fix that with some courses and classes, but obviously that is not enough.
What do you guys think, do I have any chance and do you have any advice on how it can be done?
I appreciate any answers and help.
