Start early! FN 400 gives you a great start on your
letter of intent, resume, and interview preparation so
TAKE IT SERIOUS!

Look for internship programs you might be interested in
your junior year and if you want to tour, do it the
summer before senior year.

VERY STRESSFUL! Do not procrastinate! You want to
have the best application possible! Placement rates are
still around 50%!

Ask previous seniors who were placed about their
