Hi guys,

First of all I'd like to thank everyone for their posts on this forum as they have been really helpful to get information from people who are actually in industry.

Well I am a fresh graduate from a top UK business school, I am hoping to go into IB, however I have received a few offers which has really confused me and I would love some advice from you.

As I mentioned, I am a fresh graduate, and so I have no full-time experience. I have completed a few internships at a number of banks, but that is it.

I have been offered 3 jobs, and I am in limbo on which to choose!

1) Graduate scheme in sales+trading at a very well known bank.
2) Analyst position in Transaction Advisory Services (Real Estate) for a B4 firm.
3) Analyst in corporate finance division at a well known regional bank in UAE

All these positions are based in Dubai, and also I am not really fussed about pay as they all pay me well enough to feed myself and what not. Which position would give me the most exposure? Allow me to progress on to bigger things? Move on to BB IBs? Best for progressing on the career ladder?

Many thanks in advance on all your help and info!

What desk in S&T?

The HBS guys have MAD SWAGGER. They frequently wear their class jackets to boston bars, strutting and acting like they own the joint. They just ooze success, confidence, swagger, basically attributes of alpha males.

Its a rotational grad scheme. So I will spend some time everywhere.
