Moving to Tech from Private Equity
I've been thinking a lot recently about roles outside of finance for a next job. Tech stands out vs other corporates given the smart people, intellectual rigor, and higher pay. I've got 2 years IB and 2 years at a UMM PE/growth firm where I have been focused on non-tech industry groups (generalist / healthcare). I've seen a lot of posts about the decision to move to tech instead of an analyst role in IB or even after 2 years in IB but couldn't find much on more experienced laterals. I had a few questions I was hoping someone could help me with.
- Having not done tech IB or PE, do I have any shot to get something interesting? Not sure how valued the PE background is in tech.
- What roles could someone with my profile possibly be considered for? Simply the finance function?
- What would be the best way to learn more about openings? There's a ton of postings on Linkedin but are there headhunters who focus on this?
Thanks in advance for your help. Really appreciate it.
