Unpaid HF internship
Background: STEM undergrad and STEM Work Experience
MBA:T15(finance and econ)
Was gonna do a pharma internship(paid) during the summer but just got an offer to work at a new hedge fund (unpaid tho:( )
The pharma fits my background and would help in recruiting if I went into industry and it's paid.
I'm not sure how seriously to take the hedge fund internship considering its unpaid. They've been open for a year and the 15 employees have good pedigree. Assuming I don't get a return offer, would having this on my resume help me break into other finance roles in recruiting despite it being a no name fund. And if I decide I hate it, would this reflect negatively on me if I try recruiting in pharma.
Any guidance appreciated I have no finance background as you can tell.
