    Hello all

    So I'm about to start my second year studying BA (Hons) Financial Economics. I got a high 2.1 (annoyingly close to a First, but that's life) in my first year. I'm currently looking for twelve month work placements, at the big names in both investment banking and consultancy (not sure which career path I'll be taking yet). I'm starting to think perhaps a summer internship would provide many of the same benefits but over a smaller time frame.

    What do you guys think? How do employers value a summer internship compared to a year long placement? Would it make much difference when applying for graduate schemes?

    Many thanks in advance.
