MS Finance seems like a good place to be. One of my friends started there this year.

What does your resume look like?
You can go through master of Finance program but you can't find yourself a job @_@?
Have you actually tried looking for one?
It seems it shouldn't be that differcult.

if your experience has been in IT, you will need to have a very compelling reason for why you want to switch into banking (at least a good story to fool the interviewers). if you are looking for a full time job in a bulge-bracket investment bank, it is too late as their recruiting season started in early october and ended about 3 weeks after.

internship recruiting has just started, in fact the first round interview preselects have already been made and people should be getting offers in the next week and a half. the important thing you need to remember is that if you had never done any ibanking, they will ask you why and you had better have a good story prepared. if you dont, they will rip you apart in that interview.

as for the tech stuff, get to know the 3 financial statements really well, know the valuation methods, debt vs. equity. read the vault guide on ibanking interviews.

I am actually looking to go into Corp Finance or Consulting. Hence, the names of the above companies. All them have positions in the above two fields.

be very careful though. i think the two industries actually have the utmost disdain for each other. so never tell one side you are interviewing with the other.

as for consulting, there are a bunch of firms. mckinsey, bain, bcg, fmcg, zs. no sweat
