I want to get involved in investment banking. I am planning on studying a four-year degree in Economics in September. As it is a four year degree, I cannot apply for Spring Weeks until the second year. I am currently trying to get some work experience organised. I don't know anybody in the sector, so I've simply sent out letters (well, I am posting them tomorrow), to regional outposts of Rothschild, Deutsche Bank, Barclays Capital, Barclays Wealth, UBS, Investec and Credit Suisse. I will try to get work experience each holiday over the next year. I doubt that I will get anything this summer, but how many would I need over the year to give me a good chance at getting a Spring Week/Insight programme in my second year?
