I am currently a SA at a mega multi-manager HF (think Millenium/P72/Citadel). Still uncertain about my long-term career plan, but I have been thinking of working in management of a larger corporation or starting my own venture, not in the finance space specifically.
I am from a non-target school and to excel, I feel that an elite B-school (H/Y/S) will best position me. My only concern is that administration will not value a HF gig as much as say PE or consulting. I genuinely enjoy the culture/work that I am doing right now as a SA and feel this is an unparalleled experience for an undergrad. Do you think it would be difficult to pivot later on due to the niche skill set of HF, or since I am still relatively early in my career path, this learning opportunity will still set me off on the right direction.
