Rising senior from target school with no IB experience- do I have a chance at full-time recruiting?

I have a 3.7 from a target school (finance major) and currently have an internship that's more closely related to personal finance, as well as past international experience (not IB related). Would this lack of IB experience prevent me from getting solid interviews and offers when full-time recruiting comes around in the fall? If not, what are some things I can do to rectify this glaring hole in my resume?

If you're at a target, why haven't you gotten any boutique IB experience?

Talent is hitting a target no one can hit. Genius is hitting a target no one can see.
