Hi Everyone,

I currently have two job offers, one from Cambridge Associates as an Investment Analyst and one from PFM as a public finance analyst. I understand these companies/roles occupy two different industries, but I am having a tough time deciding on which path I would like to take. I would not have a problem with accepting any offer. At the end of the day, I want to take the position and be apart of a firm where I could learn the most and have more exit opportunities into PE or HF. CA is investment consulting where I would be working with all different types of asset classes and analyzing portfolio managers performances. What they tell me is that when I get comfortable I can start to specialize in a specific asset class. Just unsure of the type of skills I would really gain from their. PFM is a financial advisory firm that works with not for profits and government entities. I will be covering all sectors and as I get comfortable I will start to specialize in what I find myself most passionate in. The skill set is heavy excel modeling (DBC) and a lot of bond math, RFP's, and that type of work. Like I said, at the end of the day I want to take the job where I can learn the most and look the most qualified as I look to move. Anything helps. Thanks in advance.
