Corporate Development decision
Seeking some advice here. I currently work in a non-traditional finance role for a well-known, well-respected firm. I am one year out of undergrad from a non-target school. I was reached out to by a recruiter for a corporate development role making around $110k all in a relatively low COL city. The company is looking to do around 20 acquisitions this year. I have an "interview" with the chief development officer of the company, a Wharton grad, soon. I know this a great opportunity if I was fortunate enough to land the role, but I was wondering if I should try and find an I-banking job before jumping into a role like this. Does anyone have any thoughts?
