A little bit about me: I go to a total non target SEC state school. I have a pretty mediocre GPA (3.3), have mediocre extracurriculars, and have no previous internshipsmnance experience. I'm a junior this year and am obviously working on these things but there is only so much I can change at this point.
On the upside, I do have a decent and growing basic knowledge of the markets/investing. I am very passionate about the financial markets and I spend a great deal of time keeping up with them, studying books on investing, researching stocks, maintaining my own portfolio. etc.
I realize the importance of an internship this summer but don't know what to shoot for with my poor credentials. My dream job would beand I feel strongly that I could excel at it, but I realize how out of reach this is at this point.
So my question is this, what kind of internships should I be looking for? (and in general) I was thinking
Other than PWM all I could really think of is F500 corp. fin, which would be fine but the same issues arise (and there's only a 1-2 that I know of with headquarters in my city)
I guess my question is this: what internships should I be looking for and how should I go about this search. What would fit my goals and still be feasible for someone like me. Any general advice on my career path is welcome as well.
Also what are your thoughts on transferring schools, Ive been thinking about this but I kinda figured a 3.3 gpa would be prohibitive of admission anywhere worthwhile.
Sorry for the longwinded post, banannas to anyone who reads it and offers helpful advice.
