Any advice would be much appreciated: I graduated from a non target this May with a Finance major (3.62 GPA). My internship experience consists of FP&A in a smaller commercial focused bank and a credit analyst at another small commercial bank. I started a 2 year Corp Fin development program at a F500 company in August. I took this offer over two commercial banking offers (after being turned for). I thought that this development program would be challenging enough, but it's not. I am bored. I am determined to break into IB, and I am wondering about 3 courses of action from here:
- Start networking hard with alumni at boutique firms and try and get hired immediately.
- Fine tune my interview skills and continue to network with hopes of applying/interviewing in the Fall and entering with analysts graduating in 2012.
- Stick it out for 2 years, interview in the Fall of 2012, and try and enter with the analysts graduating in 2013.
Any other constructive ideas for breaking in would also be appreciated.
