what are some investment banking/finance-related opportunities?

I currently study finance at Taylor University, Malaysia. And am interested in investing, banking, finance, economics, and how money works. I was looking for opportunities to work in a related sector such as investment banking or banks in general. Still, I want to know which countries have such opportunities in the finance sector and have demand for it, which can provide a good experience and ability to grow. I know generally that the US is the best option but there is too much competition at the moment so Im searching for the less competitive markets for ex: Europe, Canada, or Arabic countries? Besides that, I wanted to know what courses or work experience I should take during my studies to improve my resume and make me highly qualified in this field.

How to network and get an IB bulge bracket internship?

I would like some pieces of advice on how to network/increase my chances to get an IB internship at a bulge bracket bank. I am an international rising sophomore at Stanford with perfect grades and relevant finance internships. However, I am not great at networking and know that it is super important. How many times, for instance, do I normally need to talk to someone for them to give me a referral? Any tips on how to navigate the process? I am a bit clueless. Thanks in advance!

Seeking insights on Sales and Trading internships and full-time roles?

Hi everyone! I am a rising junior and recently accepted a 2024 Sales and Trading internship in New York. My offer letter said I would be working with the equities group but beyond that, I am going in blind. I have several questions that I would really appreciate some insight on: -As I shadow and rotate among the desks, how will the bank determine whether I will be a trader or on the sales side, and what desk I would be on if given a return offer? Is one role or desk better relatively speaking? -My impression of S&T may be slightly outdated, but is the role at high risk for automation and AI? This is the only thing I can think about in my current internship because everything seems to be easily automatable. -I am very interested in investment management and my long-term goal is to work in portfolio management. Does S&T set you up well to transition to the buy side? I partially accepted the internship because I thought the exposure to institutional investors would help me make the leap, but it seems like a lot of S&T professionals stay in the field their whole careers. -Finally, I am really interested in ESG issues and impact investing, will I be able to explore this evolving theme in an S&T role? Thanks in advance for any perspectives you can provide!
