Seeking advice into current situation. I'm from a non target, still junior analyst level, was working in a middle market IBD in NYC. I am currently looking at two routes, either entering another IBD role with the communications team (i.e. RBC, BNP) or joining a family office.
I'm unsure of what my career goal is, but I want to go to business school eventually and get to Silicon Valley.
The family office is relatively small, roughly $100mm (although family net worth is in the B's), and they're looking to bring on an analyst to help build out their venture/growth equity platform. The work at the FO will be slow, working directly with the CIO (small team). In terms of going to B school, the father is a hedge fund titan and connected at many elite schools, and he is known to write positive letters of rec - downside, is the upward mobility here is low and the role is temporary with only a short to medium term need. Unsure of what FO pay will be, I assume it will be competitive to whatever street average is.
I guess the question is given the above info, which gives the greatest opportunity to make it into Tech/telecom VC / b school?
Any thoughts here on which to pursue?
