I'm thinking about getting a career coach. I think it would be helpful for my long-term career development (not head hunter / job search).

Was wondering if anyone out there had any advice / experiences to share, recommendations, cautionary tales etc.

SB's for any valuable guidance.

Hey guys,

I have been lurking on here for a while, and this is my first post.

I have two internship offers this fall ( couldn't find anything spectacular). There both at BB in PWM. I really can't decide which one would be more beneficial or rewarding, and was hoping to get some input.

The first internship would be me working under management. The financial advisers essentially would be our clients. I was told I would be putting on events, and would help scheduling conferences. I am not 100% sure what this would entail.

The second internship would be working with a team of financial advisers, helping with powerpoints, some excel work, and word. No cold calling. The prospects would essentially be our clients.
