I want something incredible: GS/MS/JPM, but at this rate, and with these credentials, does anyone have any advice as to what I can do to actually acheive this?
My current resume reads roughly like this:
Wharton, finance and management concentrations, 3.99 GPA with tons of hard finance/econ/math classes
TA for Wharton's MGMT100
Freshman summer: worked at tech firm
Sophomore fall semester internship at no-name PWM
Soph summer: likely will work at no name PE shop in NYC.
Mediocre ECs, one leadership position. Might be 2 come SA recruiting.
That's pretty much it. That's my resume. Cookie cutter Wharton kid with substandard numbers but a very strong GPA. I've gotten some shit for these credentials ("stop showing off"/"you're set and you know it stfu") but I'm genuinely very stressed about how mediocre my resume is after the top "Academic Background" bit. I tick all the boxes, but do very little else.
Could mere networking pull me up to top BB level? Or is there something else I'd be better off doing/fixing?
