Hey WSO, I've been a longtime lurker (for some advice, but also for the laughs) and thought it's probably time to contribute back (as I also have something somewhat valuable to contribute now). Some general background about how I got where I am below:
- Target undergrad (top 20 university)
- Summer intern at EB IB (received return offer)
- Returned FT at EB IB and stayed for one year before transitioning to MM PE
- Stayed several years at MM PE before ultimately moving on to do Strategy in-house at an established start-up (>$1bn valuation)
Ask Me Anything
I remember reading on the forums when I was in school to see what working in the industry was really like or getting a few laughs once I started working. Happy to answer any questions about my experience (hopefully it's somewhat different than the traditional path), whether that's the recruiting process (IB or PE), on-the-job advice, reasons for switching careers, etc.
