Depends what company you interned at.

If IBD is your preferred area - there are a few private equity shops in Dublin that take on grads. Goodbody's take on a decent few too, Davy's also an option. Big 4 isn't all that competitive in Ireland you could go into deals and potentially lateral to PE or IBD at a MM

For trading, SIG would be a good shout. 

Maybe Citi Bank in Dublin would appreciate your grades/uni more than London recruiters - they have a trading floor in Dublin. 

Other than that, chance an off-cycle internship for a September or January start. Commerzbank and Macquarie have programmes that could potentially be of interest. Or just cash out and go into aircraft leasing like everyone else in Ireland that didn't get into IBD (joke...sort of). 

Best of luck!

Irish salaries are too low for me so I wanted to leave. I've interned for a Japanese bank once and a financial services firm four times that nobody here has heard of.

Funny that you mention aviation leasing... It had sort of became my number 1 goal... Hahaha. Is the money any good for it? I take it you've more knowledge about it then I do.

Sig and citadel, Citi and CS all have trading operations if I choose to go down that route and stay here.

Fuck all big money to be made in Ireland for the most part, at least when compared to London.

€40-45k and €50k are the starting salaries for aviation finance in two of the big lessors, one in Dublin the other in Shannon. You will need to do the MSc in Aviation Finance in Smurfit though. Cushy enough when the hours aren't as bad as IBD and living expenses lower too.

As long as you do a Master's outside of Ireland you should be fine - nobody outside of Ireland knows or respects any university other than Trinity.
