So I'm currently a student at a tech college who Is extremely unsure about what I want to do with my life. My uncle is the vice president at a local bank that has a foothold in towns all across my state. I've always gotten along well with him and, just the other day, he offered my an internship at his bank working directly under him while attending school and a guaranteed job providing my grades are decent while attending college. Now I've always had an interest in the financial world but I'm not sure if I would really enjoy working at a bank every day for the rest of my life. Doo any of you have any advice or just general info about this sort of thing?
You'd be shoot-yourself-in-the-head retarded not to take it.
Think of it this way, he's not going to enslave you to the bank. If you really and truly hate working there you can always quit. Not that you should, it sounds like you got a golden ticket on the gravy train. I hope it takes you to the stars anon.
Fucking take it you bonehead. Chances like these don't come to a lot of people going through uni.
Just because you got an internship at a place doesn't mean you'll be working there forever.
Having an internship like this will look good on your resume. And if your employers give the good word on you tilt help you even if it isint related to whatever you're doing in the future.
if you've got nothing else lined up then take it
if you apply for and land an internship at an investment bank or big tech firm then don't take it - your uncle will understand... retail banking could be an OK career, especially if there is someone in the firm looking out for you - but there are other options you might want to shoot for too
OP here. I'm almost certainly going to take the offer. But I think I'll just use it as a stepping stone for later in my career. Its just so overwhelming for me. Like I said I'm fucking clueless about what I wanted to do and then this was thrown in my lap. Feels great but it seems too good to be true.
