A director-level operations role at a PE firm landed in my lap a few months ago. Upon interviewing and learning more about the position, I realized this would be my ideal exit opportunity out of BiG4. I still have one more interview left, but until I get an offer, I’m going to focus my career search on this particular type of role going forward. It seems like this type of role is virtually impossible to find ok LinkedIn, job boards, or school postings. Is this the case for PE operations role?
