Direct admit to IU Kelly finance, then, after freshman year, last minute due to unforeseen circumstances transferred to a more overall "prestigious" state school more east, and was told I had too many credits to apply for their business school upon arrival. I graduated in August with a degree in human resources management with a minor in the business school for "business fundamentals (supply chain, finance, accounting, labor markets), had a 3.2 and 0 internships, just a "management" title for ~20 lifeguards during college summers. I currently do "account executive" sales for a large company in NYC; it's painful and mind numbing. Never applied to finance internships/jobs until now bc I thought it was impossible with my major but am now miserable in my "job" and am desperately trying to break into finance. Feel like I am too many steps away from breaking into anything specific like consulting vs pe/hf vs banking...basically any career in financial services (ie not a financial analyst for Verizon or a healthcare company) so are there any internships or extremely entry level positions I could be applying to? Ideally, I would love to get into literally any of the many graduate programs offered by a BB the ones that require 0-2 years experience. All internships I've found want current students, so I am looking to make a career change that will at least give me some leverage and a less random looking resume so I can either be considered for an interview for summer 2020/21 or be able to transition to a career path where I could get an MBA/CFA then break in at a higher level. I'm feeling extremely hopeless and am beginning to think it is impossible/not worth it. I have the general financial education and I follow the markets, but I can't even land an interview when half the applications don't even allow cover letters.
