Considering move from healthcare consulting to private equity. No previous finance experience. Would it make more sense to go to a boutique firm or a giant like KKR to phase in and work my way up?

I'm considering making a move from consulting to the President of the United States. No previous executive experience. Would it make more sense to be the Governor of New York or the Prime Minister of Canada to phase in and work my way up?

To clarify, I have no professional experience in private equity as in a company on my resume, but I've had healthcare finance companies as clients at Deloitte. I also have a large network of friends in NYC that work in PE/HF that I talk to regularly about the market. And I did do a summer internship in investment banking. Didn't realize it is as difficult to get into that space as I anticipated

OP - don’t let these debbie downers talk you out of it. Finding a job in a selective industry or otherwise, is like any case you’d have worked on. Research the industry, speak to the junior-most team members first, articulate your story and focus on the value-add you’ll bring in. This coincidentally also happens to be one of the busiest hiring periods in PE, so you must just pull it off sooner than expected and surprise yourself. Good luck!

I, a childless woman who does not plan to have kids, am jealous of the parental leave parents get to take from work from choosing to have a child (a big life event). I 100% understand that they are working in a different way by taking care of the baby and being deliriously worn out in the process, but it makes me sort of jealous that unless I have a kid there is no life event that I can take ~3 months away from work to focus on and enjoy, plus have my hours prorated and a job to come back to.

Do any of your firms have excellent resources (beyond healthcare) for newly expectant moms? Thinking about things like how to deal with morning sickness, setting boundaries and expectations or how to be an ally (maybe the wrong word, but caring peer or leader?) to a newly-expecting colleague? I’d like to create something like this and wanted a benchmark of what’s been successful, particularly in early pregnancy before people are connected to more birth-related or newborn-related resources?
