Hi - incoming PE analyst at a top Canadian pension fund here (CPPIB/OTPP/OMERS). I want to eventually move to a more operational PE shop, maybe even in America, but am unsure of my chances. I don’t have any FT IB experience besides one internship at a boutique, which is usually the prerequisite for going into PE. Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated!

Looking for some advice/suggestions here. 24 years old, TC is now 110k. I have 40k cash savings. $6,500 in my 401k and $6,400 in Roth IRA.

I contribute 7% with 100% match and 10% profit sharing at the end of the year to the 401k. Contributing $550 a month to the Roth. Would appreciate any ideas as I know it’s a good spot but just wanted to see if it’s the smartest approach.

I’ve had radio silence from a small investment bank for about a week now. I’ve completed several rounds of interviews, but last Thursday the firm reposted the job I’ve been interviewing for. On Friday the headhunter said that they’re not sourcing new candidates and it’s probably just LinkedIn automatically refreshing the listing. She said they had a busy week last week but will make a final decision this week - is the delay and radio silence a bad sign or is this typical for experienced hiring?
