Breaking into REPE MM or Mega Fund -- Is it just a dream?
First post here.
How difficult would it be to break into a REPE upper middle-markets or megafund? From what I have been seeing, it seems like if you do notIB or IB background, it would be extremely challenging. Additionally, I have been told that head hunters are crucial to help make this happen.
Some background on me: 2019 graduate, non-target, a year in prop-tech sales. Currently, a part-time MRED candidate in NYC. FT underwriting analyst at an agency lending firm (a couple of months in).
To my understanding, the on-cycle REPE recruiting cycle starts extremely early on. Any insight, tips, or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
