I am about to complete my MBA at a top 10 but non-M7 b-school and landed a job at MBB in Chicago. I am interested in going into PE after a few years. I have had no deals experience pre-MBA. My questions below:
1. Firstly, I know it is extremely hard to break into the deal team with my background, but can you give some advice as to what I can do to improve my chances?
Portfolio or operations team
I understand this is much easier to get into for a consultant. My questions are:
2. what sort of projects should I undertake whilst at Bain to better myself for this role?
3. What sort of networking should I be doing now to position myself for this in the future?
