I mean, the only thing to aim for that would be better is maybe another (better) MM IBD gig or a BB IBD position- both which are tough to get. I think you could make the argument of wanting to see what it was like working in a different position in a larger environment (stress the move to a larger firm) but decided that you were more interested in advisory type work understanding how companies work and less so in investing/helping individuals.

I did a PWM internship, and I can confidently say it's lame and employers know it's lame. I even had an MD I worked with full time mention that he thought PWM was weak -- I got the job despite the internship, not because of it. I'm not saying it's the worst thing in the world, but it's normally a stepping stone to something like MM IBD, which is very impressive for you to have done as a sophomore (it sounds like).

I would recommend trying to get a corp dev or corp finance position for the summer. That will put you in a better place for full time recruiting IMO.

you should not go from MM IBD to BB PWM...dont get lost in the lust of the BB name...if you are in a non banking/advisory role, it doesnt matter, the MM IBD job is much more impressive and you would be taking a HUGE step backwards.

Thanks for the advice so far.

I just dont want to risk reneging on the PWM offer since it was through networking.

And I'm not sure if i can find something better for a sophomore summer gig in January / February...

Anymore thoughts on this?
