How Much Does Being A Finance Intern At A F500 Pharma Company Help For Full-Time IB Applications?
Hi all, basically the title above. I asked this in thetoo, but I'm also interested in IB.
I'm a junior in college, and got a Finance internship secured for next summer at a F500 pharma company (think Roche, Merck, Novartis), and I don't know whether it would help or hurt to intern there if I want to apply to IB for full-time next year. On one hand, I think the F500 brand name + finance internship will help, but I don't know how I would justify that I was in finance in pharma, and wanted to switch over to IB. Given that I would be applying to the first-year entry-level role at IB, would firms even ask me to explain why I want to go from pharma finance to IB? Also does my internship? I never understood what that term meant. Thanks!
