Internship at no-name PE firm or mid-market bank?
Which position will be better for future job prospects? I want to work on deals and I want to work in Private Equity eventually. I have no banking experience whatsoever.
I have two offers right now, one is for a research position at a mid-market bank, and the other is an internship at an unknown private equity firm. I don't want to do research for my career.
Which one would be best to accept? Is it easy to switch from the research side to the deal side? Which one will look better on a resume? Will people care about the 3 months of live deal experience ?
