Last year as a high school senior I interned and later worked at a hedge/private equity fund that managed about $300 million and traded commodities. This summer I have the oppertunity to go back there or intern at UBS bank in Manhattan. I plan on interning at Tudor Investments the following year. Each internship has its pros and cons.
know a VP
more people to network with
spend time in the city
learn about a larger bank
diversify my portfolio
getting lost in a large workplace
i know everyone
only 15 employees
the industry i want to work in
10 minute commute
don't get to spend time in the city
don't get to wear my suits (the boss is a seasoned tiger cub and does things a little differently)
I don't know which one I want to do. To be clear I am grateful to have 2 opportunities open to me.
What do you guys think is a better path keeping in mind that I am dead set on interning at Tudor the following year. (HR says it is possible for a rising sophomore to get into the program). Ideally I will be able to do Tudor for 2 years then get a job knowing the right people after my 4 year degree. That's the plan, which internship should I choose to achieve it?
