I need a career advise. After working as an intern for 9 months in Asset management, I was offered a role in a Private Equity services firm. this firm provides Fund services to PE firms and is very successful and expanding. Also, I am currently awaiting a middle office from a leading Investment manager. Now the Investment Manager is a big player and has shiny brand name. The PE job is already offered and I am yet to say yes. Do I wait for the IM interview results or should I go ahead with this PE job?
In case I go ahead with PE job, please can someone advise on my chances to move back into IM/IB after one year of experience in PE? Will I get any opportunities in future? I am thinking of taking a certification like CFA or IMC along with the PE job. I am very confused abou this now. Please can someone help me with the decision.
