Help with Equity Research sector choice

Hi there,

I've been offered an equity research job and I'm lucky enough to be able to choose between two teams: banks and oil.

None of them are especially interesting to me (I would go for software or biotech if given the choice), but I'm quite excited about having a full time job anyway. Both teams are well ranked and nice people... my concerns are that banking is a rather dull and peculiar industry (in terms of valuation), and oil it's a dying industry.

I would appreciate any comments on which one would they choose and why... thanks!
