I'll be joining a small MM PE firm next year and I was wondering what I should do to prepare myself for the job? Anything I can do while still in college?
I know that the level of responsibility is a bit higher since mistakes are more costly, both in terms of reputation and (potential) financial impact. I guess I just want to do the best job possible and not stick out like a sore thumb, especially since I'll be working with ex-bankers and consultants who have much more experience than I do, while I'll be the only one without any experience.
So, PE veterans, what are some of the rookie mistakes you (or others working with you) made during the first year?
