I just responded to another comment of yours. Can't tell if you're an idiot or a troll.

I've conducted some interviews for this type of summer analyst role. I'd say similar accounting and general interview guide questions but be ready to answer more credit-specific questions that key off those concepts (e.g. company x has this fixed vs variable cost structure and company y has this different cost structure, other things equal which would you rather lend to?) and questions on what types of metrics debt investors would look at/what makes a company attractive for debt vs equity and things along those lines. Depending on the interview maybe also a paper LBO but could go either way.

I have an offer at a MF for their Credit Fund as an SA, wondering if I should take this over an IBD role at a top EB/BB and if I wanted to do PE in the future, would I be able to lateral internally to PE or would I have to recruit for FT in IBD to then go to PE after 2 years?

Wish I could help more on this but really don't have a ton of insight here. I wouldn't want to make a guess and be wrong as I'd think internal mobility would be pretty firm specific and likely depend on what area of credit you ended up in etc. I also worked in a credit group outside of traditional direct lending where I'd think the transition would be more likely but not positive.

Would think it depends on which of the job options you have in front you of now are more interesting you, you think you can add more value to and/or you can learn more from. 2 years down the road things change for you and what you want. Hopefully you'll be even smarter and wiser then
