About Me -
Sophomore from non-target, economics/philosophy major, good grades, have done several internships at finance related boutique shops. Always loved stocks and always will, end goal is to get to the buyside, whatever that takes
Have two offers available for the summer. One is Operations at , which means mundane resume line, networking opportunities, and potentially higher pay for the summer (errh... but greed is sooo good). The other one is junior analyst position at $1 billion long/short fund that has made a name for itself in the last 2 years (but still relatively unknown outside the niche/circle).
More about the Situation-
I've been interning with the hedge fund since mid-Jan; it's a great learning opportunity, have really enjoyed my work so far and love the people there. It's pretty intense since I work there three full days a week this semester, and I expect a even higher learning curve if I go for the summer. However it's really unclear whether this will lead to a full time position eventually, because you'll be competing with guys just graduated from Columbia Business, geared up with Wall street experience prior to that... whereas experience at BBs gives you a safety net of some sort... and might make getting into IB junior summer easier if that's the necessary detour?
All opinions are deeply appreciated and you have my sincere gratitude.
