Going to graduate soon, won't have a job, recommendations for somebody like me?
Hi, thanks in advance. I'm a senior at Boston College, economics major with a minor in history. 3.34 GPA but I took a lot of unnecessary computer science/science/math courses (GPA killers). I'd like to try and get my foot in the door in the investment banking world. What would you recommend for somebody like me? Should I apply to an MBA program? Look for internships? Go to grad school to further my study in econ.? A little bit more about me: I'm a real go-getter, I was set to go to Marine Corps Officer Candidate School in October but that is no longer possible as I have to stay at home to care for my ailing mother. I have worked part-time, 10-15 hours per week as an IT guy at school, had a nice summer internship in Info. Systems last year. I really have no experience in investment apart from attending Investment Club meetings and reading the Wall St. Journal.
