Investment banks give you a little bit of time to bed into your internship, but by the second week it’s clear what you’re in for. I haven’t left the office before 2am.

The seven deadly sins of investment banking interns

Investment banks are about to start handing out offers to their summer interns. The summer internship is most banks’ main recruitment vehicle, but this doesn’t mean all interns make the cut. If you’re pondering why you didn’t receive an offer, I’ll be frank – it’s because you simply weren’t good enough. As difficult it is to accept, some summer analysts […]
