Refiner vs Supermajor
I'm currently at a bank workingquant and have been interested in breaking into commodities, so I applied like a madman and was lucky to get 2 FT offers from
1) Supermajor (BP/Shell): Nat Gas scheduling role
2) Big oil refiner (Phillips 66/Citgo/Conoco): Trading analyst (Financial)
Both pay about the same so that's not an issue. I'm leaning towards the scheduling role since I'm more interested in the physical side of commodities vs financial. My end goal is to become a physical trader, so what do y'all think is the better choice? I know some traders used to be schedulers but how "easy" is it to make that transition? Would it be better to become a financial trader and then try to go physical? Thanks!
