Is it too late if you don't have any connection?Subscribe
Hi monkeys, I'm an international student who recently returned to campus after serving in the army (of my country) for two years. I'm a rising junior and currently very ill-prepared without solid foundation in financial knowledge or networking, and found out this year's recruiting cycles for major banks have been moved up. Some have finished their recruiting already, and a few remaining banks leave me with just a month or two before the applications close for 2019 SA internship. I want to ask if there's any decent chance of breaking in without any connection?
I go to a target school and have a STEM major with a GPA of 3.8+. I plan to dedicate most of my time in the following month in acquiring financial knowledge and preparing for interviews. My only hook is being proficient in 3 East Asian languages which I was informed IBs don't care.
I'll have to do my best and give it a try regardless, but I'd very appreciate any advice for me or objective assessment of the chance and situation I'm in.
