Hello everyone,

I will be joining a venture capital and private equity firm in Bangalore as a Analyst Intern. Very excited and looking forward to it as it's my first time in a corporate setting.

- Any tips, advices, and resources which will increase my chance to get a full time role at the same organisation?

Thank you and have a great day!

Biggest advice i can give you - make mistakes, but don’t make the same mistakes twice.

Learn to be coachable and flexible, you’re about to be exposed to a whole new world, stay humble and absorb as much as you can.

VC/PE is a heavily relationship/apprenticeship based industry

like

- Be approachable
- Ask a lot of questions
- Be detail oriented if it fits your personality
- Show initiative to take up new responsibilities

I agree with all PEA has said, network hard.

Regarding #3 & #4:
1. This industry has a lot of self-proclaimed detailed guys, who are not detailed at all. Being the guy who irons out everything to perfection before it goes to investors/LPs will earn you brownie points from partners as 50yr olds hate reading 12pt font text.

2. Best way to get a full time role is by already working on full time stuff. You'll probably be assigned some small deal to work on, but there's no reason why you can't help with others in your spare time. Manager will feel that they'll lose progress of they lose you do theek prefer to retain.

Take a month or two off working and use that time to plan thoughtfully on my next move. Would having that gap in my resume be an issue when I go back to the job market?
