Received a Quant HF FT offer as a freshman, would like some advice
I'm a rising sophomore at a target studying math who's currently interning at a quant hedge fund. A few days ago I was offered a return offer which included working during the school year and then receiving a FT offer once I graduated. (This was strictly meritocratic. I had no connection to this firm prior to the internship.) I'm aware this is a very rare opportunity, for which I'm extremely grateful, and I want to play it smart. I've really enjoyed my internship and have learned a shit ton, but I also think it'd be best if I gain some experience at other firms. However, simultaneously, I also would like to continue working for the same firm during the school year, both because the pay is quite nice and I get to continue building a skillset. Currently, I'm not sure if my long term goals align with working in've been siding more towards working 10-15 years at a prop firm (JS, HRT, Radix, etc) and then just peacing out and retiring. I'm looking for some advice on how to best handle this offer, while also both not constraining myself too much nor burning any bridges because I truly do appreciate and like my current firm. No one in my family is in finance, or the corporate world for that matter, and all my friends are too young to offer any constructive career advice yet, so I'd really appreciate any help and/or words of wisdom any one has!
Thank you so much for the help!
P.sis steadfast on including France and the midwest as regions of interest (won't update correctly), but the fund has multiple offices and based out of NYC.
