Need advice for applying to IB SA positions
Let me first quickly introduce myself. I'm David, currently in the second year of a bachelor's degree in econ. I have a fairly good GPA (3.9) but don't have a lot of relevant experience. I have tried getting finance related internships but where I am from it's not so common to get such internships early in your study.
Anyway, last year I applied to a ton of IB SA vacancies and even though I got invited to a bunch of hirevue interviews, I never came further than that. The rejection mails are always basic and never include any feedback so now I'm wondering what to work on. Since I got the hirevue invite does that mean my resume and cover letter were up to par or do those things not really get looked at until after the hirevue? Was it just that all of my hirevue interviews were really bad? I also did not really do any networking but doesn't that only get you to the hirevue?
I'm no longer the ideal candidate (most ask for students in their penultimate year during the internship) but I still really want to give it another go. Hope one of you could give me a hand.
