Non-target shotgun approach for internship applications
I am a junior from an extreme non-target state school, with interest in consulting. I am applying for summer internships and have one MBB referral, but I want to have options in case I don't end up with a consulting internship. Unfortunately, my opportunities for on-campus recruiting are limited. Very few companies that I am interested in actually come to my school. I am planning on applying to as many Fortune 500 corp strat/corp dev and corp finance internships as possible. All of this will be done online. I would like to know if anyone else has tried this and how well they think it will work.
Here is some info on me: Finance junior 4.02 GPA (some classes offer A+)
One internship for a major defense contractor (Boeing, Lockheed, Raytheon) where I actually got to do some business development work and have had a few opportunities to advise startups.
Thanks for the help
