Operations Exit Opps.ER
I'm interviewing at a hedge fund for an operations role ('Portfolio Analyst')...I don't have any modeling experience so I understand why I can't fill a real analyst role in IBD..
however, everyone seems to claim that operations is a dead end and I have a hard time believing that committing to a job at 22 years old should signal anything close to a dead end...i believe that ops is a great way to learn the business and progress in a few years..
when asked "where do you see yourself in 5 years" in an operations interview at a hedge fund, what are some good responses?
in a previous thread, someone said any response indicating a preference to advance or make it out of ops would be looked down upon...does the learning that takes place in an ops role really not prepare you for any other position?
