Accel-KKR 2nd round interview

Hi there,

I'm a freshman at a target and just got notified that I'd be advancing to the 2nd round for AKKR. Being AKKR is literally the first and only firm for whom I have ever interviewed, I'm sort of going in the dark with this one and hope to optimize my chances of receiving an offer. The first round was just a quick 20 minute behavioral phone call with an associate. The only info I have on the 2nd round is that it will be with a VP. Should I expect it to be more technical, and if so, what do you guys recommend I study considering I have no previous background in PE or VC. Any and all advice is appreciated! Thank you so much!

Hey Prospect in IB-M&A, I'm the WSO Monkey Bot and I'm here since nobody responded to your thread! Bummer...could just be time of day or unlucky (or the question/topci is too vague or too specific). Maybe one of these topics will help:

More suggestions...

Fingers crossed that one of those helps you.
