Spring Internship Information & Coaching Session
05.10.2017, 6:15pm – 8:00pm, Room 09-011
Over the past few years, a new trend has developed: up to half of summer internship spots are allocated to spring interns. Spring internships are 1-2 week short internships for first year students (students that have three years of study remaining due to a Master’s are usually also eligible) that can lead to a summer internship offer for the following year. In effect, this means that whether you are on the high-road to an Analyst job at a top investment bank in London or not will be decided within your first 8 weeks at HSG!
The odds of securing a spring internships are daunting: Deutsche Bank London accepted just 8 out 1067 IBD applicants in 2015. In 2015, a mere 3 HSG students received London spring internship spots, in 2016 the number rose to 5. That´s where we step in: Although the recruiting process is extremely competitive, we will equip you with all the information needed to defeat the odds and land a spot on the program. Maxime, a 2017 spring intern at Goldman Sachs, and Dominic, a 2017 spring intern at J.P. Morgan, will walk you through the process of getting a spot on the internship programs of leading investment banks.
You do not need previous internship experience to get a spring internship: an interesting story can be enough, but it has to be carried by perfect application materials and told in well-crafted pitch geared towards banks’ hiring criteria. In short, if you have any interest in finance, this is the perfect boot camp for you.
