Hi guys, need your advice.
I am a third year undergraduate attending UC Berkeley, with a major in Environmental Economics and a minor in Mathematics. Until this semester, I had been a Biology major, through which my GPA has suffered tremendously. I currently hold a GPA of 3.06 and no finance-related work experience.
I just feel so frustrated that I decided to change my career-path so late and at the same time feel so discouraged at the fact that I haven't been offered a single interview.
I plan to stay an extra semester as an undergraduate, so I do have another summer for an internship. Therefore, my goal is to place myself in a better position for next year's internship.
What would give me the best option? So far, the only offer I have received is fromLynch Private Wealth Management. However, from searching the forums it seems that it would be much better for me to get an internship at a local boutique bank.
So, how do I go on finding internship opportunities there? Should I be calling around at different banks and asking for available opportunities? Should I email their offices? At this point, I don't mind doing an unpaid internship, given that it provides me with substance on my resume.
Thanks for any inputs in advance
