My first post here so big thanks to everyone for help in advance.
I started off at a CC and then transferred to a non-target school which I graduated with a 3.6 GPA. After college I worked at a no-name valuation shop for 7 months, which I recently left for a MM IB in NY where I work in a coverage group (no M&A group at my bank so we do the modelling). The bank itself is not the best but my group is highly regarded in the industry (top 10). Unfortunately, after a couple months in banking I know that it's not for me and would like to move to PE asap.
So my questions are:
How would a PE look at someone like me assuming that I would try to move after 1 year in banking (+7 months in the first gig)?
Should I even mention that I worked at the valuation shop before IB (putting it nicely they have a bad reputation in the industry)?
Do I stand a chance of landing a job at a MF? How are my chances with a MM PE?
