Q&A: Non-Target International Student to BB IB Internship
Moved to the U.S. in 2013 to pursue my undergraduate degree in finance (non-target). I was fortunate enough to secure an IB internship at abank through their non-target recruiting program (NY location). I also had no prior internship experience and had no pre-established contacts working in finance prior to moving to the U.S. Finding a company to after graduating was challenging, so I was tossing up moving to Canada / Australia / England / Hong Kong etc. I ended up securing a job in corporate development (healthcare) with an employer that was willing to sponsor my visa (received my H-1B visa this year!). Currently an Associate on a 5+ person team; my day-to-day is supporting all M&A execution at my firm.
Happy to answer any questions at all, but likely most helpful with regards to IB / CD recruiting or advice for international students trying to stay in the U.S or break into finance.
