Career Advice - Houston Private Equity
I am a Senior at The University of Texas at Austin, and I am going through off-cycle recruiting for PE and IB in Houston.
Though the most common path to PE is through IB, with well over 90% choosing that path, are my chances of landing a good role at a large PE firm (located in Houston) high if I decide to work at an LMM PE shop right after graduation?
Would you all recommend that I stick to the traditional route of IB to PE?
Also, is pay all that different between Houston PE firms (analyst and associate)
