POSITION:

analyst

Going Abroad/ Junior Year: I was abroad and could not network at my school during the events in the fall semester. I had a great time abroad, and things worked out for me so I do not regret going abroad. But I have friends who chose not to go abroad to network, and it really helped them during recruiting. I also have friends who went abroad and did not network, and could not get an internship at a bulge bracket, and they regret going abroad. Luckily for me, I had the network I had built through my school organization, so that meant I did not need to network as much.

Interviews: I got lots (10+) first round interviews through on campus recruiting at lots of advisory firms and bulge brackets. This was because I had a network and I think I actually had different resume from everyone because of my PE experience. My first interviews were not great. I talked too fast, and just was not completely comfortable talking about my experiences. I knew others who got mock interviewed and they did much better. MOCK INTERVIEW!!! Although I lucked out and felt ready during my second week of first round interviews because of all the interviews I had in the first week, I wish I had mock interviewed more because I would have been better prepared for interviews in the first week.

BE READY BY YOUR FIRST INTERVIEW. TRY AND FIND PEOPLE TO MOCK INTERVIEW YOU. READ THE INTERVIEW GUIDES, BE CALM, BE CONFIDENT. ALTHOUGH I GOT BETTER THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS (and was lucky enough to, because I had so many interviews), THE KIDS I KNOW WHO GOT THE MOST OFFERS WERE THE ONES WHO WERE FULLY PREPARED BY THE FIRST INTERVIEW.

Fact: Google is more likely to hire you if your resume includes side projects. Explore company projects on MindSumo
