No Summer Offers, What Now?

Rank: Chimp | 8

Junior at target school, 3.7 gpa, PE intern experience. Networked hard since beginning of summer, did a few super days for IB and S&T throughout the recruitment cycle. Have applied to practically every firm out there at this point, still no offers. What do I do now?

I'm of course bummed about this, and have been scouring WSO for advice on how to move forward at this point in the year. Most of the feedback I've been able to get from interviewers have said my interviews have been top-notch, just unlucky that someone else barely edged me out. Just I don't know what else is even left out there, and what the chances are anymore to secure a career in IB.

So you're a junior, and in your sophomore summer you had an internship in private equity?

It sounds like he's not denying it haha.

You only option is to find a job in the finance field. Look for small boutique shops or literally anything to get you industry experience on your resume
