Should I rerecruit if I do BB sophomore summer?

Rising soph. Will be interning at a BB (think JPM/MS/BAML) next summer. I'm wondering if I should re-recruit for my junior year internship?

Ultimately, I think I want to exit to a PE megafund. My initial thinking is that I won't re-recruit just because I understand that oncycle PE recruiting starts before you hit the desk. That said, I was thinking that building up two summers worth of relationships at the current bank might be more beneficial than re-recruiting and only having one summer's worth of relationships to leverage. If I were to re-recruit, I'd probably go for an EB or another BB that places better for these PE MFs.

Would love to hear thoughts and other comments.

Edit: long-term career wise I think I want to pivot to tech (more in a corp fin/m&a role); basically want to leave finance for WLB. putting that out there cause idk if a BB name is more important for this

 

Personally wouldn’t re-recruit for JPM — really strenuous placement process. I did sophomore summer at one of the above and only recruited for 5 firms for jr summer.

 

Following, wondering if doing soph summer at GS/MS and then junior summer and full time at EVR/LAZ would be better than just doing two summers and full time at the top BB

 

No need dude- I’m at one of those EB groups and I can tell you for a fact GS and MS are great and there would be no need to switch unless it’s a cultural thing.

 

If it’s MS or JP, don’t bother — focus on group placement (M&A, M&C, HC, and GPUG (for MS)) typically have the best placements but are hardest to get into.
