Having trouble deciding between two internships
Hi, I am having some trouble deciding between two internships for the summer. I'm hoping oasis can help weigh in.
1) Business development intern for a non-profit financial advisory firm started by recent program graduates. I would work around 5-10 hours a week and mostly do cold calling and other non-finance related affairs.
2) Unofficial intern for a securities firm in China. The part I will be interning with is in charge of asset securitization and project financing. Since I'm an unofficial intern, I won't be given specific tasks or a particular role, rather I will be learning what they do for 3 months. The guy who is head of the department will personally mentor/teach me.
Both are unpaid.
I'm having difficulty choosing because I don't have an aim in the area of finance I wish to pursue in the future. On top of this, the business development intern option comes with a chance to become a financial analyst for the advisory firm during my final year at school. I just want to know which internship could possibly maximize my experience and attractiveness of my resume.
I plan to work in Toronto/North America upon graduation. I don't have a preference for corporate finance, just any career in finance is sufficient for me.
