IB or FAANG?

I am starting my postgraduate studied this months and wanted to get your opinion on what's the best career path.I'd love to work in IB but I also know that big tech is also a great career path. What is the most sustainable and long-lasting choice? I feel like lay offs happen much more often in Faang than in IB, what about the « exit » options as a former Faang in that case? (let's assume Sales/Finance roles)
