The highest paying Wall Street and City internships in finance
Internships are now the number one route into a finance job. This is not just in investment banking ? where anything up to 90% of front office graduate hires are intern conversions ? but increasingly private equity firms, hedge funds and asset managers are creating internships to feed into their (relatively new) graduate programmes.
But these internships are not a happy summer holiday. Interns are worked as hard as full-time analysts and, in the investment banking division (IBD) and private equity, this means working 70+ hours every week or even indulging in the ?magic roundabout? ? pulling an all nighter, showering in your halls of residence and heading straight back into the office.
