Hello WSO community-
I work at a very reputable tech IB shop on West Coast (think MS menlo, CS tech, Qatalyst ,, ). I went through on-cycle this year but couldnt get any MF in NY interviews (maybe because I was in WC). My goal is to eventually work at a MF in NY.
I have two offers and I need to decide
- PE analyst position with a (Not ) in their PE arm (Mostly direct or direct co-invest...no fof or secondary type investing). It would start after 1yr completion of my IB role.
- Lateral offer to top banking group in NY (always considered "the top" or "one of the top" on this forum...Places extremely well)
My goal is MF PE and I am concerned about what my options will be if I recruit during On-cycle again this upcoming November, which is effected by how Head hunters will think and PE funds will think about my cv.
Thank you for your input!!!
