Should I take the PE internship or go to look for full time job given I have graduated and the market is not so good.

Hi there,

I have an 6mth internship offer from a French PE firm focusing on fof, but minimum chance to stay after the internship. I have already graduated from my post grad. Given that it is end of year after six-month and people would stay for their bonus, meaning I might need to wait for a long time to get a full-time job after the internship. In the mean-while, I am also interviewing other full-time opportunities, which won't have the result before the due date I need to reply for the internship. Should I take the internship or focusing on full-time o now?

Your ideas are much appreciated. Thanks.

take the internship and use it to leverage your way into a FT job between the 3-6 month mark.
