So I have a choice to make here:
I have an Operations summer internship offer at Jefferies and also have an unpaid IB summer internship at a true boutique. Now I don't know how to choose.
Jefferies: looking good on resume?(according to my campus career service center) Although the internship is non-IB related, but maybe more networking opportunities with their IBD or other front offices once I am in there? It's possible to get return offers from them and then internal move to their IBD via networking, if that's possible?
Boutique: Unpaid(I could support myself during the summer so that's fine..) But it's a true boutique with only a few people, and I won't be able to get a return offer, they claim they could help me with "recommendations" to BBs. If I go with them, what I have is IB internship experience on my resume and potential "recommendations."
I am not sure which one I should take? I definitely want to do IB upon graduation, I am still at school(will graduate in the summer of 2017) and would love to hear opinions from those who are already working in the industry.
