"I come from a non-target background and managed to make it into banking, but only after close to a year of networking and hustle. I knew that the odds were against me again for PE recruiting so I started networking and trying to land as many interviews as possible only after 1 year at a boutique investment bank. I had made it to 2nd and final rounds at a few funds, but no offer. The first interview after going through this course I made it to the final rounds and got an offer! I think this package made the difference - in fact, one of the LBO modeling tests I got in the 2nd round was almost identical to one of the 1 hour LBO ones in the package. Having that modeling practice and the confidence going into the interview is priceless."
"Excellent course for anyone hoping to break into the PE industry."
"This PE course provides a comprehensive, easy to understand review of not only the interview process, but, a background of Private Equity in general and the fundamentals involved. It makes a great transition from "big picture" concepts to detailed analysis in the LBO modeling tutorial. I came from a "non-traditional" background (consulting), and felt very prepared in my interview regarding industry knowledge, business model, and technical skill. I'm very pleased to report that I received an offer within 2 weeks of going through the course. It is easily worth the cost, and I will recommend it to close friends and colleagues. Thanks for an excellent resource."
"Most guides that try to demystify PE recruiting tend to be extremely utilitarian and focused which counter intuitively limits how useful they are. This guide provides spot-on advice as well as the industry context required for the advice to be useful. This is the single best resource I've seen for PE recruiting (And in fact a lot of the buy-side in general)"
"WSO's private equity interview course is an essential competitive advantage for anyone trying to break into PE. It provides candidates with both the quantitative and the qualitative skills they need to stand out from the crowd. This is the one resource serious candidates shouldn't risk being without."
"The guide has been extremely valuable to me. It got me from zero to sixty in PE knowledge to help me get a job in PE as a consultant who knew very little about the industry. Furthermore, I still keep referring to it as a PE professional to date when I want to see how some items get modeled out. Thanks for the guide and the great help. I'm an ambassador for the guide to all my friends and if I can ever help out let me know. Thanks"
