    no i'm quite chatty/talkative in general and enjoy the social aspects of the industry.. it's a people industry. start by alumni and get introduced outwards and before you know it you have a useful network to pool information

    if i wanted/thought it was useful to meet someone, i'd usually find a way to make it happen.

    How much did your uni help with the process? As in you said you go to a semi target, if you went to a non target do you think you would've still got the internship?

    i don't know, but i reckon it has something to do with filtering, as no non-targets (if any) are represented in my divisions summer class this year

    most are oxbridge iirc

    possibly made an application, i've made a lot back in the day. have never interviewed/worked with that company before, again, i don't even think it's a bank. name doesn't sound familiar. sounds like a broker

    not alot, street pays c.£50k base (+10-15% bonus) and a £5k sign on for juniour m&a analyst.. (that being said, it progresses rather quickly 3-4 years in you're on 6 figures all in).

    most people burn out after their analyst stint, i say i wouldn't but then again.. i don't know what the future holds. i'm already interviewing with some buy-side funds to see if i can skip the 2-3 year banking process

    you'd be surprised at how much the human body can take.. i usually average 4-5 hours of sleep a night, and am fully functioning for the day.. when you are idle however, it can seriously kill.. but if you're kept busy that sense of adrenaline and urgency to complete work keeps you up..

    most people drink a lot of coffee.. but as above i'd recommend just ensuring you keep busy

    pretty much, i think after a year or two the learning kinda flattens out too, so you'd probably want to do something new

    Hmm I currently feel I'd do any job for that kind of money, wouldn't really care if I'm not learning new things but I am currently a naive 18 year old not knowing a lot about the industry atm

    What did the Econ/Finance undergrads on your uni apply for in general? Did they try for IB, or go for other sectors?
