Do you have a question?

Goal is to graduate with secure a job in the nyc area or a very solid internship with a potential full time role after.

Looking for insight into how possible it is for me getting into investment banking and what I should do to improve my chances. Would applying to different locations improve my chances if I’m looking at nyc? What should I add to my resume to look better?

Agree with McK, try for small boutiques in NYC. Network hard, downplay your weaknesses. Look at the profiles of people who do have these jobs (bulge bracket and otherwise) and mimic them as much as possible. Assuming by b school you mean undergrad

Hello, I am currently doing an internship in TAS with a small local firm and have another TAS internship lined up this summer at a medium sized firm in Chicago.

I would love to connect with some nice folks that work in TAS at Deloitte, EY, PWC, BDO, GT, or RSM to get a reference. I would really appreciate it!

How has internship hiring been adjusted given the recent hiring push? On one hand, there's extreme growth and need for talent. On the other, interns don't convert to full time for over a year from acceptance, so by then the labor demand may have subsided. Any insights?

Getting an internship as a Masters student - I have been looking for an internship in the NLP field for the upcoming summer but find it extremely hard to get one. 1) there aren’t many companies that offer internships in this field 2) a lot of them (esp big ones, which tend to offer internship in this field) require a PhD… My question is - does it make sense for a master student enrolled in a 2-year program to get an internship during summer?
