So I've been lurking for a while now and thought I should contribute a little bit to the community. Not sure if my story will be useful to other users given my geography, but here I am in case it is helpful for some.
Undergrad in Latam (engineering major). I was looking for jobs in IBD and bumped into the possibility of a open spot at one of the regional PE funds (non-Brazil). After lots of interviews I was lucky to land the job.
Been working here for 6 months now. I'll be happy to answer your questions and hopefully help someone along the way.
