Just locked down a summer VP role at a middle-market infrastructure/renewables fund (most recent fund ~2B) and couldn't be more excited. Especially sweet because I came into my MBA program from a consulting/nonprofit background intent on making a pivot to energy/climate/infra investing and have been grinding all fall and winter to improve my modeling skills and show funds that I have an "investor mindset" despite lack of deal experience.

Just wanted to share this W with the good folks of WSO since I've learned so much around here from lurking and absorbing the wisdom (and shitposting) of the crowd. 🤝 Appreciate you all. Let's get it this summer!

Damn that's sick. I just locked down a summer ceo gig myself (at the us mint, ~ $200 of shiny coinage /day). Look at us grinders go

CJ the funky homo sapien, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Thanks! Under no illusions about the grass always being greener, and know I'm going to be working a lot harder/longer than I ever have before. But I am excited to explore this kind of investing, learn a lot, and see if it could be a good long-term fit.
