WSO Podcast | E111: MBB to Private Equity and the Insanity of On-cycle PE Recruiting


In this episode, member @perecruiting_throwaway shares his path out of a target university to a top role at a management consulting firm. We also get an inside look into what it was like recruiting for private equity during the crazy 2019 on-cycle recruiting process. From interviewing on a Thursday night from 8 pm until 1 am to starting again the next day at 7 am, listen to game theory applied in a real-life context and learn how he dealt with the split-second decisions that had significant career implications.
