Hello. I have two outstanding offers for internships and am conflicted on which position to take. I am coming from a semi target and could not get an IB internship at a BB so I casted a wide net. I now have these two exploding offers. Both would not be traditional routes to PE, and I understand they are only internships. But I was wondering if anyone could provide any insight into which position might set me up for the best chance to eventually break into PE. The resources at a BB are great, but commercial banking exit opps seem to be very narrow. Sales & Trading (fixed income) is more relatable to IB since it is front office revenue generating, but at a smaller firm it might be hard to transition else where.
