I asked this question in the asset mgmt group but thought I would get some good responses here as well.

Im looking for an opinion on whether or not consulting would help me break into the fixed income research world. I have recently graduated from MBA but am having difficulty finding fixed income research opportunities. I have a consulting opportunity but I really want to do fixed income research. I am thinking about taking the consulting role with the hope that having industry experience as a consultant will help me break into Research covering the same industry I did as a consultant.

Does this sound logical to anyone? It seems like a lot of research folks have a background in the specific industry they cover.
