Hi everyone When looking to exit consulting at the Manager/SM level into PE, where/how did you source potential opportunities? Is it best to reach out to a small set of headhunting firms, or internal recommendations from friends in industry, or actually just going through the 'external process' of the fund (e.g. standard website-based application process). Any thoughts welcome!

What type of role are you looking for in PE?

Great question - I'm looking for opportunities on the deal team (thinking growth equity and likely mid market), ideally staying a bit closer to the due diligence + value creation activities given experience (do also have financial modelling experience from pre-Consulting background). Not going to be incredibly picky at this point, as I'm looking to understand what roles would be most relevant given my experience. Hope that helps!
