I received an offer at a very large bank in New York and have the choice of coming in as a 1st year analyst or a 2nd year analyst.
For the last year, I've been working at a small boutique. Though the 2nd year offer is appealing, the 1st year offer comes with 3 weeks training in London.
To make matters more complicated, training is in September, so I'd effectively be a 1st year analyst for 2 years before being bumped to 2nd year.
Though I don't think I need the training, I can't shake that it would be an incredibly valuable networking opportunity.
Short of asking for the best of both (2nd year + training), what should I do?
