I'm currently a BA/A/AC at an MBB and extremely keen on recruiting PE. Did a stint at a MM PE in Asia after graduation before starting my at my MBB and figured out I really want to do PE, but probably at a larger fund and in the US. My background is that I attended a "lower" Ivy (Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth), did a double major in STEM fields and have a 3.6 GPA.
My main fear is, reading a lot of candidate profiles and forums on WSO, that I may not get past the HH screen post resume for firms such as Bain Cap, Berkshire Partners, Frisco, AEA and Golden Gate, which are the firms I am most passionate about.
From people who have experiences HH screens and recruiting into PE, do you think my fears are substantiated or am I overthinking this?
Thanks in advance!
