    I was wondering if someone could tell me which banks do these spring internships or is it too early to start thinking about this yet?

    Also could anyone offer any tips on getting these spring internships?

    (I'll be starting at the LSE in sept for Govt & Econ)

    Thanks people!

    All of the major banks run these schemes, however they usually dedicate their efforts towards summer internship recruitment before even thinking about Spring 'interns'. I think when I was applying for 2007 Spring programs, I applied between November and December (though I only applied for 2). Basically, just sit back and chill for a bit - you're not even at uni yet and already thinking about applications :cool:! If you're at LSE I daresay you'll know about it when applications have opened.

    In the time being, I know that quite a few banks run a summer/autumn 'insight day', which is for 1st/2nd years. Might be worth trawling the threads here or exploring the banks' websites for more information.

    Don't worry, you'll know everything you need to when you get to LSE. Spring applications will become hallway banter.
    Unfortunately this is the case.

    Meanwhile, you can just go to the bank's websites and start your own research into divisions and things you would be interested in. If you are very keen on IB, then spring interns are a very good spring board.

    I am sure you will attend the spring intern talk held by some amazing students who are hell bent on getting into investment banking. Ask them anything and everything and you will be on your merry way.

    At some of the banks you can already start an application... do you think i should start send my applications now or wait until i get to LSE so as to get good advice on how to fill out a good application (CV/cover letters bla bla)

    There's loads of workshops in the first term at LSE, from the careers service and the finance societies Woah I didn't even realise spring apps opened this early, tbh most of mine were prepared right at the end of term and then submitted over Christmas. They always look at summer intern apps first and then spring, so chances are if u submit early it won't make much of a difference. IIRC though, Morgan and Goldman both have running apps, so there may be a slight advantage of getting in early there, but I dnt really know.

    Good luck anyhow Have u got an unconditional?
