I am a first year PPE student at the university of manchester. Careers in both consulting and IB interest me. I managed to get a place on accentures boot camp for consulting, however missed out on applying for spring weeks for banking. I realise that as I missed out on getting a spring week for IB I may be at a disadvantage when applying for internships. Do you have any suggestions of what I should do, maybe some work experience in banking/finance during the summer? Is there anywhere to apply for first years or any smaller IB's that you would suggest I contact in order to try and gain some experience this year so I have a better chance of getting an internship for next summer.
Or does it play no part?
