I'm currently a freshman in college and I'm exploring my options for the coming summer. This past summer I did a finance-related internship at a small firm. I wanted to hear your suggestions for what to do in order to best set up my career.
Some options I'm considering:
- As an aspiring ibanker, I want to do something ibanking-related, preferably in NYC. I know it's near-impossible to land something at a BB as a rising sophomore, but I hear there may be opportunities at boutique firms. Would the best path of action consist of cold calling/emailing people at boutiques and expressing my interest?
- I've heard PWM is possible at BBs for younger kids like myself. Is this a legitimate possibility?
- Summer school somewhere like LSE, taking finance-related courses.
I'd love to hear other suggestions as well.
