I am currently an incoming senior at a major public university in the deep south. I will be gradauting next May with a B.A. in Political Science with a minor concentration in Business Administration. I have a very varied resume with work expierence ranging from running an internship with a well known lobbyist in D.C., apprenctinceship with a Former Member of Parliment in London, and interning for a llyods of london brokerage in London. I believe I have a network of wealth that I could potentionally tap into, albeit the speed of such an acqustition cannot be determined at the present time.
I understand that my work expierence and degree do not hold much relevance, if any, in the wealth management industry.Yet, I am very determined to pursue a career in this industry. I have always been very fascinated with investments and people.
I come to you all with a question of: how do I become a more viable candidate for such a career? I am waiting to here back from the Wells Fargo team in my current location about an internship, but if that does not work out, what could I possibly do? My second question, when I start applying for positions pre-graduation, will my application hold any relevance if I am applying to a firm that is not located where i currently reside? I would like to work somewhere in Texas or New Orleans and I reside about 8 hours away from both locations.
I appreciate your time and look forward to your response!
