Q:Hi, sorry about the insecurity here but am I really ready for banking? I'm 19 but feel 12 when it comes to 'real world' things, and don't feel I'm near competent enough at all
In the beginning, everyone who knows what they are getting into, feels overwhelmed and under prepared. I felt the same way, even after my summer investment banking internship.
The key is faking it until you make it. I know you’re creating your first resume right now. Focus on finding a template online or try copying one of your peer’s formats.
At the end of the day, don’t let common objections slow your progress. Definitely apply for the position and focus on networking. At your age, there is really nothing to lose and everything to learn.
