Civil Engineering/Banking watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am just about to start my 4th (masters) year in Civil Engineering and have now decided (a little bit late) that I would like to pursue a career elsewhere and I am considering applying for analyst roles at corporate/investment banks.

    I have no prior experience in any form of financial services, and not being in my penultimate year of university makes it difficult/impossible to apply for most internships. I would apply for grad schemes but I hear that a lot of firms would prefer if you interned first. Additionally an internship would give me a feel of what I would like to do within that firm.

    To get around this I have thought about applying to do an MSc in finance in 16/17, allowing me to do a summer internship beforehand and giving me more knowledge about the industry.

    Has anyone else been in the same position or have any advice to give?
