Earlier start date for 1st year analyst
I will join a BB for full-time analyst position (IBD) in Europe.
The program actually starts in summer with a training program, but the people I interviewed with, asked if i could start a couple months earlier, since I graduated this month.
My question is: Do you think it is a good idea to start earlier. Or might that turn out be a drawback in case I do not perform like a first year analyst (with respect to financial modelling for example). After all I will be something like an intern before training. Am I right?
On the other hand I believe it might be a good idea. In terms of getting to know the team and get ahead of other analyst who will officially join the firm after training.
Might be stupid questions, but I have no prior experience as an intern in a BB.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
