HF <---> PE Internships
So I'm currently interviewing for a few internships, a, a boutique M&A firm, and a PE firm, and whilst I'm currently leaning towards the HF as I think I see myself best suited to public markets in the long term, I am also very interested in PE. I've seen a few other posts on here implying a difficulty in jumping from HF to PE due to a perception of a lack of transaction skills.
My question therefore is whether or not this is just the case for those wanting to move across years into their career, or whether it applies to internships as well.
I'd love to, hypothetically, do the HF internship and then do a PE internship afterwards and give myself options into both, and so I want to make sure I'm not pigeonholing myself too early on. For reference, I also have 6 months of M&A internship to date.
Appreciate any advice on this.
