Hello Fishes, Considering my background, if I want to work for a PE/VC firm, how can I a grab a opportunity? Qualification - BBA Current Role - Operations Analyst Company - Natwest YoE - 1.5 years I have always been keen for finance but considering the Indian job market I tried my best but could find a single role that fit my qualification. Opinions are welcome.

Instead of switching directly to PE/VC roles, shift to IB first. IB skills are a pre-requisite for PE along with additional skills. Talk to people in different IB's (Back/Middle/Front office) regarding the skills and qualifications required to crack the interview IB Front-office roles are rare in India and PE is rarer. You're better off doing a stint at back office, do an MBA from a top tier institute (IIMA,B,C,ISB) and with some luck, you might land a front office IB/PE/VC role Hope this helps!


Thanks for the insight!!
