Pursuing IB in France with little to no experience.
I just finished my bachelor, majoring in Finance and Economics with a relatively good GPA, unfortunately I didn't get any offer for an analyst position as I found about IB relatively late in my degree (swap majors) hence couldn't find an internship in my last year of uni. Although, under the advice of a local IB analyst I opened a trading account to gain more experience with different securities.
While weighting my options, I thought of pursuing a Ms in Finance in France as I speak the language fluently and have a French citizenship. I strongly believe that going to Europe would be a better choice than staying in Australia as the IB market is small and extremely competitive.
Do you believe I still have a slight chance of pursuing this career in France? I found that most of IB analysts come from hyper competitive graduate programs with an almost perfect CV.
My back-up plan is to find a position at SAAS company and work in their sales department so I don't end-up homeless living under a bridge while most of you will be pitching new deals, or simply switch into Computer science.
