Would you take this internship?

Subscribe

What are your thoughts on an internship at a Financing and financial services company such as GE Capital or CIT working in their corporate finance or Trade Finance groups?

Would this be a good way to start your career?

Is it good leverage to intern at a better place next year?

CIT has a healthcare IB group- thoughts?

Typical compensation for a FT corpfin or trade finance role?

Thanks?

Why the fuck would I take that when I can get a BB job? Are you a pre-frosh or something?

Why such a hostile reply? Chill out bro. If it's GE's FMP internship, that's one of the best finance gigs you can get. WSO has Bulge Bracket tunnel vision though, so don't expect many helpful responses. Great job in and of itself, and provides great leverage into IB/Consulting. Some major consulting firms give 2X the bonus to former FMPs.

I like your name, but it's false advertising.

I enjoy finance and Im not scared to outwork whoever. Im ready for the lifestyle I just wanna know how it will look for next year on my resume.
