My goal was to move from my tier 2 consulting firm to a sector VC/PE fund after 2 years. I have made contacts at almost every fund I would like to one day work at, and they know where I work.
Now, I have received a request to interview with an(tier 1) consulting firm. They want to bring me on board as an experienced hire since I specialized from day 1 at my current consulting firm.
My question: is it a bad look to have 2 jobs before moving to VC/PE? I would effectively have had my T2 job for 7ish months and then this MBB job for another 1ish+ year before the timeline to move to VC/PE (PE firms largely off cycle as it were because they are smaller).
