A little about myself: I'm a target school student (Ross / Berkeley / Cornell AEM ) with a 3.84 GPA. I've relied on the target status as well as GPA to carry me for a while, but now I'm sort of panicking as I'm recruiting without much relevant experience. I've worked at many nonprofits and whatnot thus far, but have not modeled or done finance for any bank. This wasn't the result of no effort; in fact, I networked as hard as I'd could even during the Spring semester, just to no avail. I'd basically given up in a period of time until now, when I realize I'm unemployed in my Sophomore summer and already lack an impressive resume beyond the academic stats.
Any idea as to what I should aim for in my last month before returning to school? I'm talking beyond the obvious, as I am already spamming cold e-mails and calls. I would be grateful to at least have some experience that would impress interviewers when asked what I did this summer; I can possibly secure a local community job like tutoring or waiting at a restaurant... But if you all have any better ideas, I'd really much appreciate any pitching in.
