Hey guys,

I have been lurking on here for a while, and this is my first post.

I have two internship offers this fall ( couldn't find anything spectacular). There both at BB in PWM. I really can't decide which one would be more beneficial or rewarding, and was hoping to get some input.

The first internship would be me working under management. The financial advisers essentially would be our clients. I was told I would be putting on events, and would help scheduling conferences. I am not 100% sure what this would entail.

The second internship would be working with a team of financial advisers, helping with powerpoints, some excel work, and word. No cold calling. The prospects would essentially be our clients.

Any thoughts, ideas, prior experience would all be appreciated!

    First sounds more operations focused. Second sounds more excel/PPT focused, which is all that banking is. I think the choice is clear, but I have been wrong before.

    Second for sure

    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

    Thanks, I appreciate the input! Is there a reason why people tend to stay away from operations? ( just curious)

    Theyre masochists. Also, they dont want to be stuck watching people doing things, rather than actually getting those things done.

    the interns working under management when I did a pwm internship, had much less exposure to finance. It's menial work regardless but at least under financial advisors you'll learn something rather than flipping through menus for intern lunches.
