Interns / Insights for First Years Undergraduates in Investment Banking

Goldman Sachs

Hello all seniors,

I have recently applied for RBS’ Easter Insight Programme but i got turned down after the phone interview. Wasn’t sure which part I failed to impress during that stage, but it’s a well-good experience to learn from.

I’m currently doing my first year out of a three years degree in Financial and Business Economics course. I’ve been looking around for more undergraduate programmes to apply, but can’t seem to find any. I am planning to apply for 2013’s summer intern with some of the top investment firms such as Goldman Sachs, Barclays Capital, JPMorgan and others.

I am rather confused and need advice on some issues.

  • When does application for 2013 summer internship usually open?
  • Before applying / joining these 2013 summer internships, is there any other interns / programmes I can join in 2012 / 2013 to boost my experience?
  • Any other advice are all welcomed. I am a very open-minded person and I accept criticism.
