Background: I am currently about to start a masters program at a semi-target school and will be graduating in December 2018 (I would like to do an investment banking summer analyst internship in 2018). My GPA during my undergrad years was good & I have taught myself financial modeling over the summer, but I know that it's very competitive to get SA positions.
Would offering to give the first two weeks of my intern salary to an investment banker in exchange for a successful referral help me get an internship? And how would I go about making this offer?
Any advice would be appreciated.
