Literally everywhere. It’s a numbers game. Might have to throw out 40 applications before one sticks. Get on LinkedIn and search for PM roles. Don’t be too brand snobby or else you might find yourself in this same spot in another 3 months.

NYC, rising 4th year, V5, M&A.

It’s been a rough transition. Been pretty discouraged and hit a low point of shame & apathy in August. Just wanted to say that I finally landed my first formal PE and IB interviews this week and am beginning to feel hopeful again! I think it’s all gonna work out.
