No internship freshman summer?
I just completed my freshman year and I don't have a finance-related internship lined up for the summer. I've been cold emailing boutique PE/IB firms but haven't gotten any responses.
The thing is I actually did intern with a search fund during my spring semester for about 4-5 months but the search wrapped up (wouldn't recommend doing an off-cycle internship again btw unless you're a god at time management). I don't want to intern with a search fund again since I want to explore new experiences but if I'm unable to find anything for this summer, I'm worried what interviewers will think when they see nothing on my resume for my freshman summer.
I know I might be acting paranoid about this since I already did something finance-related my freshman year but is it really a big problem going into recruiting next year if I can't land another internship for this summer? Should I just do another common bs freshman internship like aor another search fund just for the sake of having something for the summer? Are there any other internships I could try to go for? I don't want recruiters thinking I'm lazy or unmotivated.
Thanks in advance
