Should I recruit for buyside even if I think I prefer IB?
3rd year analyst in IB at a solid group. I realize after reaching associate it becomes significantly harder to recruit to the buyside, so my question is given the window to go to the buyside is closing, should I attempt to recruit even if I think I would prefer my job in IB? I have pretty reasonable hours, comp is great, culturally I like my firm and I've already been told I'm up for associate promote next year. I don't feel like I have a particular passion for investing, but I don't necessarily know since I've never tried it out. Just wondering if it's worth even taking the plunge. I know it's easier to come back to IB from buyside than it is to go to buyside after staying longer term in IB so I suppose that's the main driver of the question.
