Hi guys,

I didnt manage to get a front office role in my last round of interviewing. I am new to this business and was wondering what are the best roles for moving into the front office in an IB? I am considering the following roles: product control, market risk and maybe model validation. What are the pros and cons of each?

IMO market risk > model validation

model validation can be too narrow and doesnt expose you to the practicals of the market dynamics other than evaluating how your model would behave under hypothetical stressed market scenarios. In market risk that's what you're dealing with exactly. Don't know much about what product control is.
