Hello, I have a quick question for everyone that I couldn't find a definitive/reliable answer to while searching the forums/Google, so thought I'd post here.
I am a college junior and have been attending some networking events at firms. On more than one occasion, I've mentioned to the banker I was speaking/networking with that in addition to IB, I am also interested in, and have received a surprised look and a "Really?" in response.
Is it really that surprising to see someone who is interested inalso be interested in ER? I realize the compensation and prestige are different, but is ER really that far off in terms of exit opps at a PE/ /VC? Is there something about ER or IB that I'm not getting? Or am I just making a big deal over nothing?
