TS vs T&S for PE?
Hello, I need an advice on what to do next. I am an European graduate student with two possibilities. Both appeal for different reasons.
Salary does not play much of a role.
1) Transaction services analyst at B4 in the country I am graduating in.
+) analyst role
+) better country (work wise)
+) technical role, good to kickstart career
-) not sure I want to do FDD
2) Transaction and Strategy graduate program at another B4 in my home country.
+) rotation in CF, FDD, and Strategy (T2)
-) traineeship means more flexibility but probably taken less seriously in terms of seniority for potential next steps(?)
-) home country (where I want to go back, but in a few years, worsefor younger professionals)
I know I'd rather be in T&S because of the less quantitative/monotonous work and more strategic/commercial approach. On the other hand I believe I could gain more of the hard skills in FDD (~ similar to IB?). Maybe it is also possible to rotate internally to CF (which is most probably more interesting) which would make it worth it.
Iget into PE in my home country, though i'd like to gain some work experience abroad in these first years of career, PE or not. I don't think i'd be ale to move out of my country after the grad program so this could be my good chance to stay abroad.
Which seems like a better option? Anyinsightosimilar experiences/choices.
