L/S Credit HF Paths

Hi Everyone, 

Looking for insight on what kinds of products would be good to specialize in a BB trading role to position myself to be competitive for L/S credit hedge funds? Don't have too much knowledge on the buy-side opportunities available within funds running credit strategies so any advice is helpful. 

I'm currently in the early stages of a IG trading analyst role and in about 2 months I will be able to chose to specialize in either IG CDS, CDX, or IG Cash (either in energy, healthcare, or TMT

Thank you in advance for any advice!
