Quick question: I am finishing up my sophomore year at a target undergrad bschool and am deciding between summer offers. I am leaning towards a Hedge Fund FoF, with a little over 1 bn AUM. How well would this set me up for junior year recruiting in S&T (more interested in sales than trading), Asset Management, equity research, etc? I know there is no actual investing in securities obviously, but I was hoping the exposure to the industry will be looked favorably upon. Any opinions?

This is a great opportunity, but what is the other offer.

Other opportunities would be corp. finance at F150 or a PE fundraising/advisory firm (a placement agent). I feel as both of these options are geared more towards IB/PE though, which isn't really my immediate target after junior year/graduation.
