So, I basically applied for a summer internship to 3 firms this year, but failed at varying stages of the application process, hence not securing any. I have dedicated far too much time to applications during the 1st semester and I don’t really feel like applying to any more firms. I need to concentrate on studying now, as my 1st semester exams haven’t been too great.
I’d like to know whether not doing an internship significantly lowers your chances of getting a job?
Has anyone been successful in grad job hunting while not really doing anything worthwhile the previous summer?
