"Peaking" too early?Subscribe
I am currently interviewing for a top PE firm internship after my freshman year of college. I got it through a family-friend who I see at a golf club frequently. Our parents are friends but I knew him well enough to ask directly in person. He is an alum of my college and really tried to convince me to go there when I was deciding. Anyways, now that I have told my parents they are recommending I push back the internship to sophomore or maybe even junior year since they don't want me to "peak" too early.
I probably won't ever get a better internship so would it be better to wait until I am closer to full time recruiting so my experience is more relevant? btw, I don't want to start my career at this firm because people I trust recommend I start in IB before transitioning to buyside.
