    Hi,

    I recently came across lots of spring weeks/insight days but mostly they open only two second-years on a four year course. Would anyone have any hints on what first-year students on a four year course can do? Are there be any other opportunities that they may take?

    Would really appreciate any constructive advice.

    Cheers.

    Same issue here.. I am sorry I can't really help you, but have you thought of doing volunteering abroad? I think it's also a way how differentiate yourself from the others..

    Thanks for your response. Seems getting a summer internship is even more difficult than a spring insight.. So what did you do? cold-calling local smaller boutique IBs/smaller consulting firm?
