For investing roles, people often say it’s important to try to lateral at the pre-MBA level. Is this also the case for moving to value creation teams at PE firms (from consulting) or is there more flexibility in timing?

There is more flexibility. Arguably the MBA gives you a better shot.

Both. The MBA gives you a broad network in the financial world that, if used correctly, can get you more shots on goal and also a leg up other candidates.

No it doesn’t matter nearly as much. You can easily do that from MBB and top MBA (HBS/GSB, maybe W), it’s more networking, doing the groundwork and showing the interest

How you dare include W on that list! JK

Pre-MBA investing experience is helpful for landing a post-MBA PE role

No, they’re definitely still looking to hire consultants at the post-MBA level, but of course keep in mind that by virtue of the pyramid there’ll likely be fewer open positions the higher the level you try to lateral from.

Good morning!

Still trying to figure out this whole Fishbowl thing, so here goes my first post.

I would love to get into provider credentialing, but all employers I've looked at want at least 3 years of experience. So, I'm looking at remote Provider Network Coordinator roles, because I'm finding some of those roles don't need AS MUCH experience. I'm a RHIT, and have been working in healthcare for nearly 10 years.

Any advice on employers is appreciated!
