Read this before reading my long post: This path is only applicable to Latinos, African Americans and Native Americans, since it is a requirement to be accepted to the program. I hope this following post provides another way (from the many great suggestions of all of the other posts) to finally land an internship This is my first post in WSO. I decided to write it because I couldn't find any posts similar to the path I took. A path that landed me a summer internship at a top firm. Many people are not even aware that it exists. Some people will argue that it is unfair, but for me, it was

So I applied to SEO as a freshman and I got an interview screening. It seems they ask different behavioral questions and technical ones. I'm confused what to expect as just a freshman because I'm sure the email is sent by default to all applicants as it talks about internship hunting for the 21 year which obviously I can't do as a freshman. So I'm curious if anyone else had applied to SEO as a freshman and what I should do and expect. Should I begin to pre technical material for the screening or try and email them about it since I'm just a freshman?

has anybody ever tried creating an SEO agency targeting local businesses and had success? For example 1 - learn SEO on how to rank a website for low to medium competition keywords in the google search engine 2 - call up local businesses on the 3rd, 4th, 5th page of google for these keywords (eg... "denver chiropractor") and offer to get them ranked on the 1st page of google search for keywords that their potential customers use o search for businesses like theirs "denver chiropractor" 3 - rank their website (on-page errors, optimize for targeting their keywords, improve load speed, compress

I find this very bizarre since I don't know that much about computers in general and even less about SEO, but I've accidentally stumbled upon a very simple loophole in google's algorithm that can very easily help sites get to the first 2 pages for a variety of commonly searched keywords. Is this by itself worth anything or would I need to start a SEO company to benefit from this? I also need to be able to sell the idea without it being stolen from me, because I can literally describe how to do it in three sentences, so after I say those three sentences no one really has any reason to pay me

I had an informational interview today and somehow we started talking about the SEO program. He said it was great for people coming from a non-target school. He was also from a non-target and worked at Lehman before going to work in capital markets, so I valued everything he said. After we talked for a while I asked about internship opportunities and he said they don't offer and I asked if he could reference me to anyone he knew in IB. Said he doesn't have many contacts. So I went to this SEO website and it looks like a great program and is highly sought after. Except for the fact that it is for "students of color". What the fuck? I clearly see my fellow pale skinned folk in the pictures.

Hello all, you have probably have heard this question a thousand times, but here goes: I got my Associates in Business Administration from a city college in Fresno CA (tiny town),and transferred to University of Nevada Las Vegas, I am technically a junior but actually a sophomore because I won't be graduating until 2020, I have tons of work experience but not in IB. Since I am not from a target school and have no alums to draw a network pool from (I tried for both my city college and UNLV and only found 1 person!), how do I get a summer analyst position for 2018? I am willing to work with any

Sponsors for Educational Opportunity - Career Program Internship Since 1980, SEO has provided college students of color with paid, summer internships in competitive industries. Through training, mentoring, networking, and support, over 75% of eligible interns have received full-time offers. More than 30 years later, Blacks, Hispanics, and Native Americans are still underrepresented in many top entry level jobs. It is well known that a diverse work force improves business results which makes SEO as relevant as ever to corporate America and to the groups that remain underrepresented.

Accepted an offer to work in regional office of BB. Is it worth it to ask HR to request SEO to let me participate in the program? Pros 1) Extensive training 2) Outstanding networking opportunities 3) Chance to listen/learn from top business leaders Cons 1) Stigma of being labeled SEO intern Is the supposed "stigma" of being an SEO intern really that bad? I'm not sure how people would even know you're in SEO. If you keep it to yourself, they'll just assume you're just another intern right?

Anyone here applying for SEO this year? Would you be interested in exchanging resumes or discussing applications? Also, can we not turn this into a discussion about affirmative action like SEO threads of the past? I'm asking politely.

I was wondering how a bank verifies the vaildity of a URM recruiting candidate. For the BB banks, if you apply saying you are a Native American (I'm 1/8th) do you need to give a tribal roll #/CDIB card number. I never have registered for a CDIB card and was wondering if I needed to.

So this is the situation I am in. I didn't get many interviews, but I did land and ACCEPT an offer at a solid boutique IB in New York, but its certainly not Laz/BX/Evrcore and its also not really well known outside of IB, which matters to me because I am not 100% I plan on staying in IB for the long-term and am even considering different options for the fall. I was recently offered an interview with SEO (I applied a while back) from what I understand they guarantee placement at one of the following places in IBD. * Bank of America Merrill Lynch * Barclays Capital * Citi * Credit Suisse * Deutsche Bank * Goldman, Sachs & Co. * J.P. Morgan * Lazard Ltd * Morgan Stanley * UBS I would take any of these places instead of my current offer. (well UBS is pretty bad now in the US so I think that's the only one I wouldn't) Obviously I would take GS/MS/LAZ/JPM over my current option. http://www.seo-usa.org/Career/Investment_Banking

so after getting rejected from SEO as a sophomore a few days ago and not even been granted a first round interview, i got the following e-mail today ---------------------------------------------------- Hello - Thank you for your interest in SEO. Because of a system glitch your application decision indicated that you were invited to interview with SEO. Though you were not interviewed we do commend you on your many accomplishments. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused. Unfortunately we cannot offer you a position within this summer's intern class. Best wishes for a successful internship search, SEO Career Program ----------------------------------------------------- I'm not exactly sure what this means. Was I basically fucked over by a "system glitch"?

Hello, I am currently a sophomore at The Wharton School who is currently in the INROADS program and I was curious as to if they have the ability to place students into investment banks for internships. I know SEO is able to do this, but I was curious as to if INROADS could as well. Thank you very much.

I was wondering what GPA SEO interns generally had if they went for a BB internship. Please no dumb "I know who you are!" or "SEO sucks" answers. I'm just looking for a ballpark answer (definitely no "somewhere in the range of 0-4.0 even though that would be funny)

Some background: - Penultimate year from target looking for IB and Consulting internships - Applied through SEO and have been recommended to partner firms, but only for audit and tax (as consulting has already filled up, and SEO for IB haven't got back to me yet). - Got assessment centre with a Big 4 firm for Tax very close to my exams and really can't afford taking a day and a half out. - Also got assessment days with at least 2 of the other Big 4 for Audit/Consulting. Really can't see myself working in Tax, and to a lesser extent Audit, when I graduate. I am also less than enthused about even doing the Tax internship. But I think it might be a good stepping stone to consulting/IB.

Hey guys, I'm at a very odd position in my studies. I transferred to a regional-target school after my sophomore year. I am currently a senior and initially am suppose to graduate in May 2010. I had no advising so I didn't seek an internship, just took some classes. I have a stellar GPA and a manage a student run portfolio at the school. This is good but I have no internship and I feel when deciding between two full-time candidates, they will always choose the one who has experience over me.

I am interviewing for the S and T program in Houston this weekend. I am NOT trying to start another thread on the virtues of SEO, but was looking for help from those who have already interviewed. What kinds of questions were asked and anything you felt you could have done better. Thanks for any help.
