Assuming you are post-MBA and dont have previous IB/PE experience, the likely PE exit is portfolio ops. Gameplan for PE Ops is usually to do 2-3 years and grab a VP/SVP of Transformation role or similar level in a sales/product/strategy function for a VC/PE backed start-up or PE portfilio company. Specs ive seen on some of those exit roles are like $250-350K cash but $2-3M equity kicker if company makes it to profitable exit in 3-5 years.
