Not sure where I'm supposed to post this but here it goes. So apparently investment-banks started taking applications from Sophomores for the 2019 SA position around Winter this year. With how early recruiting is now, are there other jobs within high-finance that aren't as cut-throat with recruiting? Or are most jobs such as AM/CB/S&T/Consulting/ER following this same format (just to name a few)?
It seems like you need a Freshman Summer/Sophomore Fall IB/PE internship now to be even considered.
