Hey guys, I have been feeling a bit lost recently.
I completed an acquisitions internship at a Top 5 REPE shop my sophomore year and have since accepted an offer for this summer at a top debt group. My original thinking was to get some debt experience (since I had already spent a summer in equity) and either I'd love it and stick around or it would greatly benefit my equity-side investing experience. I have heard mixed reviews on the strategy in my network and my equity-side fiends have encouraged me to spend the first couple of years in equity. My long-term plan is to be an LP-investor in hotels at some point.
So now I am considering talking to top equity groups for full-time but I have no sense for what the timeline looks like. Is anybody giving ft offers before end of summer? Aside from Starwood/BX are there any guys hiring directly out of undergrad that weren't in an intern class?
Is it common to spend a couple years on the debt side and then do equity? Like I said I am very interested in the debt side - I just want to make sure I have my bases covered and that I'm not limiting myself in the future. Especially since I really do love diligence for equity/investing etc
I'm at a top target (Harvard/Wharton type) with a good GPA if that adds anything
