Lateral to GS/MS/JPM?
I've been an analyst in a coverage BB group for over a year now and have the opportunity to interview for an analyst position at GS/MS/JPM (same coverage group as current role). I lateraled into my current position from mm research (worked for 1 year, same industry as current coverage group) so I wasn't really planning on making another move for another year, but the deal flow in my group has been relatively weak and I'm worried that I'll end up with weak deal exp after my 2-year stint, making it very difficult to get into PE and resulting in me lateraling to another bank after year 2. In terms of PE recruiting, I haven't had any success in the few interviews that i have actually gotten, given the weak transaction exp.
I'm looking for some perspective on lateraling into GS/MS/JPM, given the fact that I just switched jobs last year. Any thoughts?
