Here's my situation: I'm going to graduate a semester early (December 2008) from school and probably won't be starting full-time until June or July. I don't want to let that six or seven months go to waste. What I'd like to do is get an spring internship to pass the time, preferably ina boutique investment bank. (I'm doing Equity Research for a in NYC this summer and I'd like to try my hand at some other areas just to broaden my expertise.)
So, how should I go about looking for spring internships? When is the best time to start seriously looking?
