Hi guys- just wanted to get your opinions on career trajectory long term. To give some background I just started working in ER as an associate in biotech. I have an MD and just finished my internal medicine residency in the summer, passed Level I and II of the CFA as well, taking Level III in June.
I love the stock market and enjoy the work I'm doing- my plan is to stay in this role for 3 years. From there it seems like there are 3 routes: 1) continue in sell-side and work my way to being an analyst knowing that this positions are tough to come by given the low turnover as its a pretty good money with better job security than the other options; 2) transition to buy side at hedge/mutual fund- higher ceiling but less job security, also active management has been on a downward trend and with the algo's who knows if this will be a viable or attractive down the road; 3) join a biotech company in corporate strategy/CFO type role
What are your thoughts/advice? Thanks
