Q&A: Associate at MM Private Equity fund
Hey WSO, I'm a first-time poster and longtime reader. I have some downtime on account of MLK Jr. Day and wanted to take the time to give back to the community and provide some insight on my career decisions I've made along the way.
- Non-target LAC (e.g. Little Ivies)
- Interned at in Operations
- Everything since has been the result of a ton of hustle and preparation (and luck), not to mention friends and mentors who have spent countless hours advising and pushing me forward
- Started my career in and pivoted to investment banking / corporate M&A. Currently an associate at a $4B middle-market fund.
I'm happy to answer any questions about my experience: breaking in with a non-target / non-traditional background, the recruiting process (IB / PE), on-the-job advice, and reasons for switching careers, as well as anything else I might have forgotten. Fire away!
