I am an undergraduate BA business undergraduate at Plymouth University with a 2:1 predicted grade. I'll be honest and can accept my A-levels aren't the best. I've been trading for over 6 months now successfully to try to boost my finance related knowledge both from a worldview and in Excel.
I have work experience in a variety of different jobs from customer service to graphics, just none finance related.
I'm also currently doing the BIWS Financial modeling course to further extend my financial knowledge.
I've been networking with Alumni and potentially have an informational interview with a director at a BB in April but there are not vast amounts that have gone into investment banking.
Internships seem to decline solely based on my University and A-level results; the same can be said for graduate positions.
Do I really have any chance of breaking into investment banking?
Should I try for non-analyst positions and try to work my way in?
Any genuine advice would be welcomed.
