I've secured a VC internship in my penultimate year at university. I love the firm and the work they do, as they seem to be an interesting mix between VC/growth equity/PE, and I can see myself working in a place like this for a long time (provided I'm given the chance).
However, I still enjoy the idea of crunching numbers in Excel like a true monkey does in PE. There isn't much of that at this firm (as expected in VC I suppose). We generally outsource the M&A and IPO work to IBs, so there isn't much I can learn in that regard (albeit a bit).
So the question is, given the skill set acquired in VC, is the move to PE possible? Even if I don't decide to move, I still like to keep my options open. What other high finance roles would be available after a few years at VC?
