Friends, what's the best way to get into deals advisory or similar? my sister who's a STEM with 2-3 YOE wants to go into deals advisory (her end goal is VC/PE). Is anyone who's made a similar move up to speak with her and possibly make a referral?

Can you clarify what you mean by deals advisory? What kind of experience does she have

She comes from an engineering background. So deals advisory is everything to do with Transaction Advisory, M&A Advisory and/ or Financial Advisory

I had an interview for an senior mgmt role at a bank and the interview was going very well. Beginning of the interview, she mentioned my resume was very impressive. She also said I was extremely intelligent and that I had a bright future; however they’re interviewing people with over 26 years of experience and would want someone more seasoned. I’m feeling super discouraged. Why bother with my resume at all?

PwC I think our (up to) $20,000 referral bonus (for getting in a senior manager/director to the global mobility services group) seems to show more a sign of desperation especially as competitors offer $3,000-$4,000 for a senior manager referral bonus. What’s the deal? Have a certain number of that experience level been promised in the sale of the practice?
