    Hi

    I'm on my gap year and I was wondering how I can find internship to do during my gap year. Since already on my gap year it might be almost impossible but I'm not looking for a paid one. I just want experience on investment banking.

    Should I send emails to companies asking for one with which uni I got into?? (I'm gonna be doing maths at Oxford)

    I do have something planned for gap year but investment banking is the path I want to take when I graduate so please give me help on how I should find an internship!!

    Thank you so much on advance

    Do any of your relatives work in the industry or know anyone that does? If so ask them. If not then cold calling small firms is your best bet.

    It's hard to get anything meaningful until you start university. Your best bet is to cold-call smaller smaller places asking for a few days here and there.

    GS and JPM offer programmes for A-Level students. I don't think they're internships though. It's more of an open day type deal. I'm planning on applying to quite a few programmes like this, apparantly it looks good when it comes to applying for spring weeks etc.

      Do you think you're that good?

      If yes, try to persuade me.
