IB, Tech, Startup: when to take risks?
Curious as to how some of you approached riskiness of jobs and careers as a college student/early in your career.
IB ain't looking to hot rn but at the end of the day the paths there to be walked it seems like at least early stage.
Fortunate enough to have had experiences in Quant (/HRT/CitSec etc) and a IB and think I enjoy the trading side more but also really didn't mind IB and the optionality of the exits/not being fired 6 months in for P&L I just can't get out of my mind.
Wrapping up my senior year at the end of the year and part of me wants to just say fuck it go balls to the walls and do quant or a startup but just want to hear some of your thoughts from people who have travelled the path. Thanks all.
