Hello friends, I am a rising junior who recently concluded my IB internship at a boutique (worked on 1 live deal for 7 weeks), and have the opportunity to work at a boutique PE firm the next two months. (PE internship is paid, small, 40/hrs a week, and I would start mid-July). If I'm looking to recruit for next year's IB SA positions only (not PE) is this internship worth it?
Some questions/concerns include:
-Is my IB experience sufficient? (my only finance work experience)
-Does a PE experience add value to my resume, and/or will listing 2 short summer internships detract from my IB experience?
-If I'm interested in recruiting for IB only, does it make sense to have a PE experience following my IB internship?
-Should I focus more on recruitment/networking/interview prepping for IB internships rather than working another job?
-If I'm applying to some firms early, would I even have enough PE experience at that point to write it on my resume and talk about it? For regular processes?
