I'm only a freshman at a target school (top 10 private) and hope to go into investment banking after graduation. I'm not really planning on doing much this summer except for reading a lot of books and getting a job.
Next summer, after sophmore year, Im going to try and get a hedge fund internship because Im interested in investing and the buy-side. Also, im from California and would much rather stay close to home for that summer so Im going to specfically try and obtain a hedge fund internship in California.
Will the fact that I'm not doing an ibanking internship in NYC hurt my chances of getting an ibanking internship at a BB for the summer after junior year?
Yes, I guess im a little paranoid but who can afford not to be in this economic environment?
