Exiting from corporate banking?

I know exiting into PE/HF is virtually impossible from corporate banking, but I'm wondering where people usually end up after doing corporate banking? Do they just stay?

Is there a way to search on linkedin for former job titles so I can see where people actually ended up exiting to?
Would love to hear from actual corporate bankers or people who know former corporate bankers as opposed to people just theorizing.

Possibly the portfolio side of a buy-side shop PE or private debt, I've seen that happen a lot
