Where do you find private credit roles?

Currently a credit analyst for a JPM/BOFA/Wells size bank. Wanting to move into private credit, but I never can find opportunities. Im mainly looking in Chicago, and usually the only opportunities I find are from the Golub and Antares sized firms where I am throwing my application into the bottomless void of 6,000 applicants. I am definitely interested in working for a smaller firm, but can never seem to find opportunities for them. 

Besides LinkedIn, what are some ways I can find opportunities within PC? Also, is transferring from credit within a large commercial/corporate bank still a viable path to PC?


Your best bet will be HH. Most PE shops with PC arms will likely use the same HH for their on / off-cycle processes. Echoing the post above, find the “credit HH” forum and reach out. If no roles atm then ask to be on said HH’s distro list.

Cold emailing is highly underrated. Get a large list of the shops you want to work at and cold email them. Works better for boutiques and smaller funds of course.

The last 2 PC jobs that I got were from cold emailing.


Yes I’m in commercial banking for a BB. Would a move to PC be a complete longshot? We’ve had analysts leave to local PC firms but I’m not sure how anecdotal they are.
