    On my CV Ive got 1 proper work experience as a finance assistant and 2 volunteering.

    I've got a one reference for my finance assistance role. But none for my volunteering which was teaching kids in a village in South Africa whilst on holiday. Say if I'm lucky enough to get an offer, would this be an issue with regards to background checks?

    I'm applying for finance grad btw.

    Hey guys,

    Is it OK to write a cover letter addressed to dear sir/madam if you do not know the name of the person?
    Its really difficult to find, for example, the name of the person for banks such as MS, JPM ect. so just wanted to make sure that this is acceptable.

    thanks in advance to those who reply.

    How difficult is it for a UK student to get an internship position in a bulge bracket firm in New York, if you have a contact pretty high up the hierarchy?

    Already answered earlier in the thread, basically impossible. Although, if your contact can get you an interview then maybe.

    you obviously know more about the chances, since you are the one in the situation and I doubt anyone else in the forum has gone through it

    Is it too late to start looking for internships? I thought we were meant to start looking for them in early October, but holy ****, everyone here sounds like they already have one.

    I was only recently introduced to the contact and I haven't even approached him yet. I was asking to find out how much to realistically expect - chill with the hostility mate.

    So it's not really a contact ahahaha, I very much doubt you'll get an interview if this is the first time you're speaking to him.
