I have 1.5yrs of experience at. I have finally received an offer from a decent ( , , , ). However I have recently found success in landing a few (though not many) interviews for credit investing gigs (which is the ultimate goal).
I have no pedigree whatsoever.
Would the incremental benefit of committing an additional 1-2yrs to a relevant group at one of these banks be worth it? Will I actually have access to any opportunities that aren't available to me now?
In addition, I'm currently in a southeast financial center. Will recruiting for funds be any easier by moving to NYC?
Will my lack of pedigree still keep me locked out of fund recruiting channels regardless of which bank I work at?
I am considering passing on the opportunity and trying my luck with the few hedge funds that are willing to speak with me now. This is an incredibly difficult decision for me, and I have no idea what to do. Accepting this offer means I will have to drop out of the recruiting process for a $2B & a $500MM credit fund, and also wait a year to begin recruiting again.
