I'm a freshman and I went to adiversity event and got business cards and wrote down names of all the employees who spoke at the panels. I'll be completely honest and say that I don't really know . I've taken accounting and macro and micro econ but I am completely foreign to , , etc. I know for a fact that the banks will begin taking my resume for openings. We get to choose up to 3 industries. I know for the time being I need to work on my technicals and reach out to people I was in contact with. Honestly, I don't really care if the sophomore SA is in a decent MO or finance, risk, etc. since it would be better internship. Do people in expect me to know everything there is about the industry. This is what I was thinking for a template.
