2 Offers - help me decide

Got 2 offers for a work term in the Fall (final year) - hv exp in FP&A, BD and Risk... Need one more term- if you were to decide, which would you think would be closer to IB advisory? Both are from the same brokerage firm - and yes, i know the titles sound tedious, but this brokerage is fairly well known.

Neither of those sound like they are close to IB...

If the 2nd one is close to the trading desk, it may, repeat MAY open up the possibility of becoming a trader down the line. The other one, I don't know. Good luck.

i agree the second one has some links to trading. I'd go for that one if these two options are the only choices you have and try to get to know as many people as possible in trading to get better experience later.

Yeah, kinda far from IBD. Both honestly sound like BO to me

I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
