How to go about this...
I have a friend who is interested in breaking into the banking world. He's a senior at a top 40, but non-target school with a 3.35, solid extracirriculars, but the only experience he has is in sales for the past two or three summers. He is interested in a MM or boutique firm vs. a BB and maybe something in Chicago vs. NY.
Any tips on how he can go about finding MM & boutique full time jobs without banking/financial internship experience? I personally am unfamiliar with middle market firms and am curious if he has a solid chance of landing a FT job? Do they do recruiting in January and February for full-time?
Any help would be appreciated.
