Hi fellow monkeys
I am in the process for an analyst position at PE, I first passed a phone interview, and was invited for a 1-1 in person interview at their offices. At one point the gave me a laptop and a keyboard and I was given 30' to do an easy modeling exercise
It seems that I did well and the next stage of the process is to build a model from scratch and present this to the partners. Well, the problem is that I have no idea how to build a model, I have <1 experience in IB and did not want to move to PE yet, however I unexpectedly landed an interview at a PE that I really like so I want to try this seriously
I have taken some models from work and I want to start building them from scratch but I have no idea if I should approach this differently. What will they want me to do? Just build a 3 statement LBO model and give the IRR? and if so, how do I learn to do this in 2 days?
I want to try, even though I seem this kind of impossible...
