Tips to get Investment Banking Internships


Hello everyone,

I am currently a high school senior who is applying to a few target colleges for Investment Banking. I know how important internships are in the IB process and I was wondering if anyone has any tips on how to get these internships during the summer before the start of college (if it's even possible)

Thank you so much and Happy Holidays!

Your idea is great but wishful thinking.

Unless you are Steve Mnuchin's kid, Goldman or JPMorgan are not going to welcome you. You will have an easier time if you go to Wharton or Sloan and apply after your Sophomore year.

Happy Holidays as well.

I have to second this answer - it's highly difficult to get an internship in investment banking even as a college student, let alone as a high schooler. Don't worry too much about internships and instead focus on developing strong grades, test scores, and other ECs.
