I want to write that I plan to work at an asset management firm and gain experience in both the buy side and the sell side. Does this even make sense???
Yes it makes, I started on the sell side and then moved to the buy side, however, the move (on any direction) is not very common. I have a good friend who attended MIT who made the opposite direction before going to Business School. Also know a guy that started with credit structured products and has moved to trading.
I hope that helps.
