Hi guys, first time posting here for me even if it's like 1 year I keep visiting this community.
Actually I am attending an MSc in Corporate Finance at an Italian private university (no Bocconi) and I am sending applications between Milan and London to look for an intern opportunity in IB by March 2019.
Of course, coming from a semi-target university I would say, it's more difficult for me to get in this world, but in the past years I tried to develop my resume and skills with the final aim to break in IB: right now high marks, two erasmus experiences (one already done, the other in progress) and a summer intern (5 weeks) in Big4 advisory services is what should help me passing the screening phase.
Despite this, in these days of applications, I still feel a bit demoralized and discouraged when applying for banks and boutiques, thinking of being penalized by an academic path made in a non-top european university. Moreover, 2day I just received "NO thx" mail from William Blair.
How would u handle this situation? would u keep selling applications (trusting in statistics) or what else?
Right now I am studying the WSO guide for IB interviews but as I said, i am a bit confused/discouraged.
Thanks for the attention and have a good day.
