Coffee Chat with Bulge Bracket COO
Hi, WSO! First off, this is not a fluff/brag post -- I really need advice.
First off, I'm a sophomore (rising junior) at a HYP. Humanities major, previous summer internship at major non-financial institution (think UN Secretary General, White House, the EU, etc.), upcoming summer internship at startup in emerging industry (think Artificial Intelligence, Marijuana, Alternative Energy). Starting to prep to apply for Summer 2021 IB Analyst positions.
Through a family friend, the Chief Operating Officer of a bulge bracket bank reached out to me to grab coffee (now that our schools have been moved online, lots of free time). Obviously, I know this is an incredible opportunity, and I don't want to waste it. I'm no expert in IB -- I solidly understand what it is, and I'm halfway through some guides on interview questions, but that's about it. How can I best capitalize on this meeting? How can I best avoid fucking up?
