Take this resume to poundtown... So I am a rising senior at a non-target (still a decent school though). I've been trying to network and have some phone chats set up. With my low GPA (3.3 from a non-target) I realize without networking I probably won't make it through screening. But my experience is OK I just don't know if I... 18 6 years 6 months
Infiltratrating Career Fairs That Are Not At Your...So I go to a non-target where banks only recruit for MO or BO positions. There are a couple of target schools in my area that I'm sure banks recruit for IB and S... 11 6 years 6 months
