I'm currently a junior going to a non-target school in Chicago. I'vecoverage group position at a MM investment bank here in town ( , , ) but recent have been interested in working Leveraged Finance in New York.
I know it is incredibly challenging to go from SA to FT at a different bank so I want to build as strong a resume as possible. I have some corporate bond Fixed Income modeling experience from a previous AM internship which involved building 3 statement models of large public companies.
I'm looking at part-time buyside internships for this next semester and wanted your guy's input on which would be most impressive for a New York lev fin application. Here are my options for part-time next semester:
1: lower mm private equity
2: mezzanine debt shop
3: private equity fund of funds (very few coinvestments)
4: (mostly as a / ops intern)
Would you guys please rank these 4 as far as which you think would be most impressive for lev fin given that I already have Fixed Income AM experience and will have MM IB experience next Summer?
Thanks for all your help!
