Want to get advice from people who know how banking recruitment works.
I am doing my MBA from a top 15 b-school in the US and tried to recruit for banking in my first year. Unfortunately, it didnt work out for me and now I aminternship looking at budgeting, forecasting etc.
I want to understand my chances of getting into i-banking now, either in the second year or post MBA. I know MBA internship is THE primary channel to get in the door for mostand given the state of the economy with horrible Q2 results and all, most banks might not even recruit anyone else outside guys who interned with them this summer.
So, my questions are - do i-banks recruit students with Corp. Finance internship experience at all during second year? I have no prior Finance experience whatsoever. What would be a good kinda job (Business Development, treasury etc.) to get in second year so that I can switch to banking in 1-2 yrs after graduating?
