PE Analyst Secondaries -> Direct Investing PE Associate
Wanted to get opinions on moving from PE secondaries to direct investing. I am interviewing for a 2 year role for a PE analyst for MM secondaries market at a well-known brand. I was wondering coming out of this, will I be able to recruit for direct investing PE associate roles with adequate networking/through headhunters?
The firm says people coming out of the 2 year program are either directly promoted to associate, go to top business schools, or go to direct investing firms. I just wanted to get thoughts from people on this forum if they know of people moving from secondaries to direct. I tried doing LinkedIn stalking to see if people did in fact make the transition but had a hard time trying to track people in general that were in this role before.
Any advice/thoughts would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance!
