Hi,
I am going into my second year at University, doing Maths and Econ at Warwick. I am going to apply for internships to all of the big banks however I don't know if I have enough relevant stuff on my CV.
I have 2 A*s and an A at A level, spent 2 days shadowing a corporate financier in J.P Morgan through family friends, went on a charity expedition to Africa, and received a high 2:1 for my first year.
While this is all great, I don't do many sports and am not in many societies. I couldnt find work experience this summer and so feel I am lacking in lots of areas.
Internship applications are so close now so do I have enough to get myself an interview at a bank like Goldman Sachs or JP Morgan?

If you don't think you have enough ECs, get more....
It's all kinds of messed up to do ECs jsut for the sake of ECs and I tihnk they're highly overrated anyways. Maybe times have changed, but work experience (even jsut shadowing) should trump most ECs (of couse you don't wanna come across as a guy who's got nothing in life but uni / wanting to get into IB).
So if you want to o an EC, do something less standard rather than the usual boring finance society crap, but some sports, or hobby, or culture related society.
