How to Network This Late (Summer 2018)

Basically, I didn't go to very many recruiting events sophomore year because I wasn't really sure I wanted to do IB. Now I'm a rising junior interning at a Global Fortune 100, but I'm kind of stuck with a mediocre/shitty GPA from a target (non-Ivy). Where do I start? How should I approach alumni?

In the same position. Currently interning at a HF, and am from a non-target. My future ambitions are to possibly break into a boutique or get into a BB. A good way to start, from what I've read & advice, is to start building a network. Make sure to have a LinkedIn profile, and keen it to make you the best candidate. Invest in some IB books -- these will be your best resource for breaking into IB -- and begin to follow markets and trends. Getting into IB from a non-target is all about your ambitions/story, and most importantly network.

Summer Analyst BB Networking Advice (Originally Posted: 04/10/2017)

Hey guys,

I'm currently trying to reach out to alumni to prepare for recruiting next fall for summer 2018. I'm pretty much just focused on IB but should I also reach out to other divisions such as investment management, S&T, etc? Or would it do no good if I solely want IB.
Probably one of my strongest connections is someone who isn't in the division but would he be able to help me when the time comes?
