Desperately looking for finance related internships
I posted this here because although I'm not looking for a "job" but an internship, I think you guys might be able to help me.
So I'm desperately looking for finance related internships between fall 2012 and summer 2013. I'm taking a year off (sort of a gap year between my studies) after a get my bachelor degree in economics from a Swiss uni in August.
I'm willing to go anywhere in the world basically: Paris, London, New York, Boston, San Francisco, Chicago, Sydney, Toronto, Frankfurt, Geneva, etc... I'd love to experience something new, a new culture, be more responsible and meet new people.
I still have to do my CV, I have no experience to date, only academics. Also, do you think that being a semi-pro athlete for the past 3 years can be an advantage?
I found this list of all banks that offer internships on the forums, it's an incredible list:
Should I do my CV and just apply to some of these and just mention that I'm looking for an internship between fall 2012-summer 2013?
Any help will be much appreciated.
