I’m on the KKR investment side but I imagine that the interview would be similar in that they make an effort to prioritize culture in the hiring process. So, while you might be tempted to go on about how you have a solid track record of driving operational efficiency across various organizations, etc., your main goal here is to show that you have a “beginner’s mind” by asking good questions. This assumes you already have the technicals down.

KKR - out of curiosity, what is your view on the NGT and growth equity teams more broadly at the firm? How does it stack up to, say, General Atlantic or a dedicated growth firm? Also curious to hear your thoughts on the Global Impact team. Is it just there as a glorified PR exercise or is it a strategy that the firm genuinely feels excited about? (I did like the Burning Glass acquisition a lot)
