Long time lurker finally coming out of the shadow here. I promise now that I have officially made an account, I will openly contribute to the forum!
I currently have three options: to work for a boutique hedge fund w/ $100million aum,w/ $4billion aum, and at a for its securities division.
I graduated from a Ivy league school this past May, and have recently just started looking for a job in the past week or so. I found the two of the three jobs by sending my resume directly using linkedin to reach out to MDs directly because I realized I had missed recruiting season by like six months... :/
Choice #1: BB - market making/flow; but with the prop desk gone thanks to the financial crisis, I'm not sure if this is a good idea
Choice #2:- analyst role, researching and advising macro themes for executable ideas
Choice #3: AM - assistant PM with pretty much guaranteed role to a PM in 2-3yrs.
Which of the three choices would put me in a position to start a hedge fund one day? Lets say in the next 10 to 12yrs?
