Off-Cycle internships in London
So I've been accepted for a second tier MSc in finance in London, which places relatively well in London IB. I talked to career centre and they were optimistic about getting a SA role, but told me it's up to me to earn FT, which is only fair.
They essentially suggested that I focus on getting a SA internship first, then do off-cycle in case I don't receive an offer right away(can guess because I have basically no related work experience) then hope to get a FT offer by the summer intake. Based on your experiences, is this route doable? do firms accept students for Off-Cycle internships more easily? I appreciate your help.
