Junior Product Manager @ PE Firm Career Progression

Hello everyone,

I am a Singaporean student who is about to graduate, and have been looking for a job recently.

I have always been very interested in Private Equity, and have two Private Equity internship experience under my belt.

I have been trying to search for an investment analyst role in PE, but I understand it is really tough to break into the industry with an undergraduate degree, let alone an investment analyst role. Most PE shops required a couple years of big 4 or IB experience.

I recently chanced upon a product manager role in a renowned PE firm. Any one have any idea what are the roles and responsibilities of a product manager in a PE shop. What is the career progression like? Is it possible to later transition to an investment related role? Will be advisable to get into the PE ecosystem first and then figure out later or search for a banking or consulting role now if my exit strategy is to enter PE?

Thank you so much for your time and look forward to hearing to your thoughts!
