Need some advice here. So I have the option to work at a boutique private equity firm, only four guys in the entire firm, in an internship capacity completely for free, and I also have an offer to join a commercial bank's management associate program. The program is one year in which I would be a credit analyst with the intent to develop into a commercial banker. The bank does not have anso lateral move wouldn't really be an option. PE is my ultimate career goal, but the position is more of a data entry type thing. With only three people I really feel like I could leverage this to learn a lot, but wanted to see what everyone had to say. I would basically be turning down a salary for the chance that I can turn this into something. For background, year out of undergrad, looking to get into IB but as of right mow these are my only options. Also went to non target. Thanks in advance for the advice.
