Title says it all. I'm a junior at a top NESCAC with a 3.40 GPA in Econ, some solid finance experience my sophomore year and plenty of finance activities and leadership on my resume. Additionally, I speak several useful languages and know basic coding in C++. My knowledge of financial concepts is good, and I think I interview well.
My problem is, I haven't been able to get very many first round interviews. The only one I have had was for an elite energy boutique in Houston, and I made it to the superday and from the feedback I was told that I was rejected based on fit.
I've been networking a lot with alumni from my school, but many of them give me vague responses and have given no concrete information to me, even when I prompt them to.
What am I doing wrong? I'd like to break into IB, but increasingly it seems like an impossible task!
