    Hi guys

    Im currently studying A2s (on a gap year - resitting A2)
    Do you know of any internships for the summer? I will be free from June/July to September. Most of them are for university students.

    If anyone could help me out I would be so grateful!
    Thanks

    Is there any chance at all of an upper sixth student getting an internship in IB or Consulting? Any suggestions on what to write?

    Why A Speculative Letter?

    The speculative letter is used when you are trying to interest an employer even though you know they might not currently be recruiting. Where competition is fierce it can be an effective way of creative jobhunting. Your letter needs to show that you have researched the company and the different roles/jobs in the organisation.

    You need to make it clear why you are targetting them, and what makes you of particular interest to them. Each speculative letter you send should be different. A standardised approach is unlikely to succeed. The speculative letter accompanies your CV. Both documents are your chance to promote yourself on paper.

    Your best chance to get a "non-standard" internship is via networking/contacts.

    Never heard of it. Maybe if you're something really special or your father is CEO of Goldman Sachs
