Take a Bad Offer vs. Take a Gamble with COVID Hiring Environment
I was a virtual intern in a group that had cuts, so I did not secure a return. Still have great relationships with supervisors who are happy to be references.
FT recruiting has been an absolute black box. I've got an offer in hand with 1-2 weeks until it explodes. It's an M&A role at a MM bank, not in a major city, and not a very good bank. It's a large step down from where I interned (not BB but a strong, global boutique).
I believe I can find a better position. But hiring is a lot different with COVID, so I'm struggling to weigh that with just taking the offer.
Just wondering what you guys think of declining and going through with recruiting, or how to best leverage it. Also for those in a similar position, have you had any luck yet?
