    What are the odds of securing work experience over Christmas break in the investment banking industry- with no prior employment in this field, but with good grades and a CV full of employment with diverse jobs such as waitress, film production assistant and accountant's assistant- for a 3rd year BA History student at the LSE?
    Could someone recommend any companies that hire over Christmas break?
    Thank you!

    There's no specific company, just cold call all the investment bank that you know or can find (try boutiques though, you would probably have better luck).

    Unless you have contacts at a bank I'd cold call some boutiques.

    Go to the LSE careers service site and browse some of the vacancies on there. Loads of small boutique openings.

    It's pretty difficult because a lot of people are on holiday and there is often just enough staff to cover the work needed and not a lot of extra for supervising students. Often the few places that are available are taken up by students with parents/connections in the right places.

    Persuade me that I should take you on. That's another route.
