Breaking Into IB/PE/VC
I am a recent finance graduate from a non-target school in Texas. I currently work in the business development operational side in an Oil & Gas Firm in Houston, but have very strong aspirations into breaking into an analyst position in an Investment Bank/Private Equity/VC firm. I have accounting intern experience from a Fortune 500 auto company and operational O&G intern experience. I've been out of school for about 7 months working full-time in O&G and have been getting rejection emails from different companies in IB/PE/VC. Looking for some advice in breaking into this industry. Is it too late for me? Would my experience be relevant at all in the competition? Do I have a chance against other recent graduates that have IB intern experiences? Any other roles I could look into to work into the analyst position? What are my options? Any other advice? Thank you in advance!
