Well take PE off the list unless you can get some PE experience before your MBA. Why not recruit for tech now?

funny

If you want to be on deal side of PE, strategy is not super marketable compared to your competition of bankers and other buy-side folk. You def can move to T2 or MBB with right network and timing

Apply to banking

After a month of having to constantly ask about my onboarding, I finally was able to join. Now, it's been two weeks and no one seems to know how I get my laptop. With the support number I get an automated response of some mail I should have got which never came. I raise a ticket and they close it saying talk to the manager or onboarding advisor. There is no onboarding advisor and my manager asks me to go back to support. So, did I do something to offend the gods or is this hassle expected?
