I really want to work in Investment banking in New York and am very passionate about finance. However, I have never had an investment banking analyst internship. I have had two other internships in accounting and sales. Because of some personal health issues, I have to spend another semester at school and am graduating late in December 2019. I am currently enrolled in Wall Street Prep and doing the Invest Like the Street Analyst program. I have read that its nearly impossible to attain a full-time IB analyst position after graduation without having previous IB experience. Are there any banks that would allow me to do an IB internship in the spring after I graduate? Should I get a finance internship in the spring after I graduate and then apply for a summer IB internship? Will banks even let me do an internship after I graduate? Should I just go for it and apply for a full-time IB analyst position after I graduate? Do any banks even hire people in December/January? Sorry, I have a lot of questions I just really want to go into investment banking and I have no idea how to get there.
So essentially should I try to get a spring internship and then a summer internship and then apply for a full-time analyst position? OR should I just go for it an apply right after I graduate in December?
