I have received an offer in the public sector,(think state legislature, senate, congressional) as an intern after trying with no luck to get a finance gig. I am still trying but have to accept/decline this offer in a week or so. I would ideally like to get intoand was thinking I could use the lower work load (relative to IB) to take some online options & trading courses and manage my newly opened account. Also I may be able to get some finance exposure during the internship through research.
I am just looking to get a little feedback on my situation and if it will have a positive/negative/neutral affect on my chances at breaking into trading or finance down the road.
