Networking - Carlyle Group

i have a meeting coming up with a principal from Carlyle and my goal is to be in dcm. Do you think this is a worthwhile meeting? I feel that talking to him i should be trying to play in the PE field but i don't think that's the best route for me?

You're essentially asking should you go DCM or PE which is a question you need to answer.

You're born, you take shit. You get out in the world, you take more shit. You climb a little higher, you take less shit. Till one day you're up in the rarefied atmosphere and you've forgotten what shit even looks like. Welcome to the layer cake, son.

I mean that i definitely want to go DCM i just dont know if this guy would be able to help me with that route? He is a great connection cause he is well known and very googleable. my whole point is i'm not sure what game plan to have with him.

Is he in PE or DCM?

Just don't focus on yourself during the meeting- ask a lot of questions about what he does, how he got where he is, etc. When the attention turns to you it's fine if you see yourself in a different area- you might as well be up front about it. He could still be a valuable resource in terms of connections or advice.
