How competitive is it to break into ER vs IB?
See title. I wannaat a respectable investment bank or a boutique bank. I've been networking like crazy. Have a call next week with a ER Associate at CS and I'm currently exchanging emails with an Executive Directly of ER at CS currently and .
Background: EY Strategy and Transactions = 2020 for 7 months.
Plan for Summer 2022 = EY Strategy and Transactions Internship.
CUM GPA = 3.20 Non-target (had serious familial issues in 2020 which led to my GPA falling off a cliff) Major GPA 3.70+
I hope to apply for summer 2023 internship that leads to a full-time roll.
What advice can you give me?
