I just got my MBA (worked in tech before, no finance pre-MBA) and have 2 offers I'm considering:
-graduate rotation program at $100bn+ asset manager (mostly long-only, some absolute return). I would , PM, and and then select what group/area I want to go into.
I ultimately want to get into L/S equity investing. I have some hedge fund connections and have mostly been told that buyside-to-buyside transitions are much easier to make than sellside-to-buyside. The one advantage I can think of for Sell-side is more exposure to hedge funds and ability to network directly or through the sales team (once I've networked with them). Pay is similar, so that's not a deciding factor.
Any thoughts are much appreciated. Thanks!
