- An internship is an attractive option for people who want to start a career in investment banking.
- The process is competitive but some banks are still accepting applications for summer 2022.
- Here’s a list of those currently open. But be quick because some are closing soon.
For early-career professionals looking to break into investment banking, there are few better ways than an internship at a leading leading Wall Street or City firm.
Despite the often long hours, the opportunity to gain first-hand experience from senior bankers, and hopefully a full-time job offer at a major global bank, means that the application process is extremely competitive.
