Lateraling to different PE industry vertical
Asking for a friend - has been working at an industry specific PE shop for a bit (O&G) in Texas but his fiance/wife to be is from a MCOL in the NE and would like to relocate there to begin their next steps in their personal lives. All good by him, he loves the city, and actually seemingly relishes it because he's been Texas based his whole life. Issue is is he would like to stay in PE, and there are a fairfunds in the target city, but none in the same industry vertical he's in currently. How does he go about approaching some of these funds about making a move, explaining the rationale of S/O wanting to move back to the city. I'd like to tell him that it shouldn't be that hard because the city isn't that desirable from a finance professional standpoint that he's competing with a ton of qualified candidates, but he's having a hard time crafting the experience piece of his story.
