So I recieved a job offer recently and am having issues deciding whether I should take it or push it off and go to B-School (if I am accepted).
I got an offer to work at a Fund of Hedge Fund as a Snr Analyst.
Bonus: 30-100% of base
Total Comp: 110k-170k
I was applying to the usual top 10 b-schools, looking to move from the Fund of Hedge Fund side to working at a Hedge Fund. With this package though, the comp is pretty close to what I would expect out of B-school. But I know if I take this position I would prolly end up forefiting my full time asperations and end up going part-time, which would be a compromise as I was really looking forward to the full-time experience. But the money is pretty sweet.
What would you do in my shoes?
Sounds like a cool gig.
If you won't be satisfied until you wind up at a HF, and you believe the only way there is via b-school, then do that.
Don't let your comp dictate your move, though. Even if I was making post-mba salary/bonus right now, I'd still leave in a heartbeat. I'm not doing what I want to do.
Obvious advice, I know.
