Hey WSO! I landed an internship at a BB in my country, it was quite hard to do so because I'm only a junior in high school. I didn't get it through personal connections, I cold emailed almost everyone in IB here.
Now to my question; how beneficial is this for me? Would schools think I got it through personal connections and write it off or would it make me stand out?
I don't want to come off as someone who is just trying to pad their resume because I'm genuinely interested in finance and IB.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
