S/T or Equity Research SA -> FT HFST
Hey, I know we've still got a while before SA recruiting and the market is a mess right now, but I was wondering, if my goal is to get into a fundamental group such as DE Shaw (General Associate) or Bridgewater (Investment Associate) after college, what would be the best SA groups to apply to? (Yes I will also be applying to the SA positions available at the funds that have them)
Would being a SA at a BB (yes I know this will be tough to do again, but humor me) in S/T or Equity/Investment research be better? I think I've been biased by this board but S/T sounds the more prestigious ones (something that I think the funds would like), but then again S/T has been taking a pounding lately...
And if S/T, what desks would you recommend? How's something like FX trading?
Thx a ton, any other suggestions would be great too!
Best of luck everyone,
