Hey guys just want your advice and input I recently go two offers from two large publicly traded corporations in my country(Canada) one is an internship offer for the treasury department while the other is a back office position(not internship) for commodities hedging working directly with the traders and VP of commodities. Both of these are my first real experience for large cap companies have weighed the pros and cons of each 100 times just wanted to get your opinion basically summed into this the back office one is the more ambitious,better company and more interesting role as I prefer capital markets over corporate finance but this would be full time until I graduate & can risk getting laid of if my performance isn't what their expecting and then be back with no experience , while the other one is the safer,(don't have to worry about getting laid off and performance expectations aren't as high considering it's an internship) still get decent experience but not as high as the other one. What would you guys do?
