I'm currently a rising junior at a non target school in a big city. I currently intern at a firm, but it's just a wealth management internship(been working here for 3 months). I want to get into asset management and I figure buy-side equity research would be the best route. The reason I'd rather jump to buy-side instead of sell-side is because I really enjoy the researching process and I feel like buy-side is better suited for that.
My firm has an investment team, but from what I hear from my coworkers is that they rarely if ever hire interns.
So again, I'm looking for an buy-side er internship for next summer.
My GPA isn't very good it's 3.4 right now. I had a terrible freshman year so I've been trying to pick it back up.
I considered studying for CFA level 1, but apparently I can't take that till I'm at least a senior. I've taken WSP and I'm a CS minor so I have a little programming experience. I should also note I've done some stock pitches and I'm currently working on another one.
Do you guys have any tips?
