Hi guys:

I was wondering if anyone can opine on switching from public equities to credit when you are ~5 years into your career please? Assuming the candidate is from a reputable buy-side equities firm (deep fundamental research, long holding period), what are the doors that are open, and what are the gaps the candidate should cover themselves? Are only certain types of credit investing roles still open for them?
