stuck between a rock and a hard place for my summer internship
I just recently spoke to someone at my local Merrill Lynch office about working out a summer internship which would be great on my resume I think whenever I start doing interviews for more prestigious internships my junior year. The problem is, while the VP of the local office told me he would love for me to come in and work for free, I either have to get college credit for it or they have to pay me.
The thing is, my college sucks I'm working on transferring out to a better school but this doesn't help me in the least at this point. I would be willing to bet that I'm the only freshman who has gone out and found a finance internship this summer and I know that they are going to jerk me around with this and probably won't give me any credit for it considering I'm only going to be a sophomore this fall.
As you can tell I'm not very optimistic that my school will give me the credit and ML is not going to pay me so at this point I'm SOLJWF.
any advice from those of you who have worked something like this out your freshman summer?
