Hi fellow monkeys,
I'm headed for a non-H/S M7 MBA this summer and am trying to get a feel for recruiting, so I'll have a viable battle plan soon. Before reaching out to my school's relevant career groups, I wanted to ask here first.
I understand that generally you would need an IB internship to be considered for a full-time offer. This is supported also by many school's career reports, according to which BBs/EBs do not return on-campus for full-time recruiting. On the other hand, I do see people trade up firms going full-time, so there must be some form of recruiting.
Now, my questions are:
* Would a buy-side internship (AM/HF/PE) shut me out of full-time IB roles at BBs/EBs?
* If not, how would the recruiting process most likely look like - OCR, referrals from summer associates, school network,...?
Before anyone asks why I'd want to do this: I'm aiming for AM/HF roles, but there is a small but real chance that I don't like it; IB is the next best thing. I have seen people do PE summer -> IB full-time at the MBA level, but these could be the exceptions rather than the rules.
