Career change from [email protected] Bracket to Private Equity
I am 35 and a VP in Tech role at bulge bracket IB. Pursuing my MBA at a Top IVY - class of 2022. What are my chances of landing a PE associate role ? I am fully expecting it to be a challenging switch as I don't have any prior experience in PE. My primary interest in PE is developing skills in improving companies as I expect to get first-hand experience in turning them around.
Some of my concerns :
Am I too old for a career switch into PE ?
Is it even possible to switch from a Technology ( coding and Project management experience) background into PE ?
