Ultimately, I think I want to do corporate strategy or corporate development in the long run. I currently have a full-time offer to do corporate banking at a large bank. My question is, should I take the offer, and then try to internally lateral within my bank to do IB, or should I recruit at a small boutique IB firm? I know most of the top and large IB firms are done recruiting, which is why I need to target the smaller ones.
