EM with 5 YOE. What is the right title to target for PE/VC? Associate or should I am higher? Looks like TC would be a step down. Though getting into target industry of course.

Yeah, SA would be the highest you get hired at. No chance anyone hires you at VP level. It doesn’t make any sense on the deal team to hire an ex-con(sultant).

I’ve seen it happen several times. But if you get any to focus your efforts, go for the SA role

Idk it’s tough - gotta be a compelling story for why you will be a better prospect than a 4th year out of banking. EM skill set isn’t extremely attractive to PE folks. (I was a early EM w/ 3 YOE)

You could also do MBA and gain a SA/VP gig out of that. Haven’t heard of straight lateral though..
