    Dear All,

    I'm a student of Bsc Management at the University of Warwick - Warwick Business school.
    I'm 19 years old, Turkish but lived in most of my life abroad. I graduated in 2015 achieving the French Baccalaureate with High Honors. I took a gap year and studied economics at one of most prestigious universities in Turkey called "Koc university" and lived on and off between the US(my dad lives there) and Turkey. I'm highly motivated and have a huge set of experiences(very resourceful person), I speak 4 languages fluently(french, turkish, english and spanish). According to you, what are the odds for me to get a spring internship and any advices ?
    Thanks in advance and sorry for any mistakes, I'm in a hurry.

    Well, spring weeks are not just going to be given to you. It depends on how much work you will be putting into it. You definitely have a good profile, but I am not sure what work experience/extra-curriculars you have. Best way to go around that if you don't have anything that stands out: Network. You are at Warwick so make sure you go to every event hosted by banks on campus and leave an impression.

    Is this for 2016? If so, you are already late.

    Thank you for your reply. I mean it's for the springs in 2017(applying right now-late2016-), people around me are still applying(as warwick started a lil later than other unis). Thanks for your advices.

    It's very easy to break in to from Warwick if you work hard enough. There are so many banks that come to campus to talk with you. If you attend and impress them you pretty much have a first round (don't forget to follow up though).
