Depends on your background and industry focus...I’m a DDV partner and have helped place a lot of people in client deals/Corp Dev/strategy roles. But I also take pride in the fact that most of my team very actively wants to stay with the firm and my main goal is to help them chart their own path here. I turned down an offer from Google 10 years ago and Deloitte/BDO/BCG oppys since then and haven’t ever regretted it. Please DM me if you need help.

I’ve seen people exit into industry roles related to their functional pillar SME (Finance, HR, etc). This is usually at least manager level. Some companies have started building their own internal M&A capabilities, and look for functional expertise to support deal execution.

Another B4 - I only half joke. Rarely do people get exits from DDV from doing DDV and the skillsets they picked up there

OP. Yes. You’re OK as a UG hire since you learn a lot of basic things but post MBA it is pointless.
