IBD SA internships for Sophomore (Resume Included)
I am a new WSO user but I've been visiting this site daily for the past 3 week. I cannot thank you guys enough for your willingness to share your experiences and at the same time provide me my daily laughs.
Anyway, I am currently an international sophomore studying in a non-target but top state school in Texas. My GPA is a 4.0 and I will be taking the Wall Street Prep course in my school in the coming week. Looking through the forum here, I realize that SA in IBD are not required to know how to model and apparently only needed to have basic technical knowledge which can be acquired through vault or the interview guides here. Assuming that I could master the vault guide by the end of this month, should I consider applying to SA positions in BBs and other boutiques? Note that I am an Econs major.
Also, what are the obstacles sophomores commonly face while applying for these positions? Aside from the fact that most want to hire juniors so they could work for them once they graduate. I am thinking of applying to boutiques in Houston and Austin.
Could you guys also take a look at my resume at documents/28268 at Razume and give me your critique? I would really appreciate it. I could post any links yet as I am still new here hence the format.
