PE first round interview at mega fundSubscribe
I have my first ever PE interview coming up and it's with a relatively new team at a mega fund (KKR/TPG/BX type, and it's in London).
I think I'm well prepared for the technical / modelling stuff (which I think it's more likely to get after 1st round interview) but a bit worried about the first-round interview which I presume would focus more on the fit questions / CV as it's a telephone interview with 1or 2 associates in the fund.
I was wondering, when people say fit or CV questions for PE, do they generally just mean why PE/ why this firm / your past story and experiences this type of thing or do they ask you very robotic competency questions as you would get for banking internships? i.e. give me an example when you work in a team / when you take an initiatives this type of question?
Any insights on what to prepare for the first round would be very much appreciated.
Many thanks in advance!
