Portfolio Management (Goal is acquisitions team)

Hello everybody, 

Quick Summary: French, bachelor Economics & Master degree in finance French BS (Top 10 not targeted by IBs or big names).

Off-cycle: 6m Amundi RE Paris (Fund Mgt, Residential / Vines)

Off-cycle: 6m French Major Bank Paris Debt Capital Market

Fixed-term contract: 1-year - London German Bank DCM Syndicate (PP/MTN)

After my first experience at Amundi I was afraid of being stuck in RE and I was dreaming of IB as nobody from my school managed to find FO positions in banks but now I really want to leave, I cannot stand DCM anymore for several reasons.

Currently enrolled in paying RE modelling courses my goal would be to land a role at a London REPE fund in the acquisition team. Due to the current context the job market was kind of frozen, I had a few returns and I feel like offers are popping up again. I've been called for a Portfolio Management Analyst role in a fund that invest in ABS

What do you think about this experience, would it be a good line on the CV to move wether in the investment team (maybe I'll like ABS investments) wether in a REPE fund 

Should I keep looking for a REPE offer even in this context and with my "weird" background? It's kind of frustrating because I know that I could easily fit and pass interviews... I'm supposed to end my contract at the bank in 1.5mth.

Thanks in advance for your returns guys!
