It’s a really stupid industry convention that people don’t want MBAs without PE experience.... but it do be like that

I know that’s the logic but it’s kind of BS. We have MBA interns and they do all that stuff .... and then they don’t get hired by any PE firm. 🤷🏼‍♂️ Guess the industry needs its arbitrary sorting mechanism.

Very hard. MF PE (most PE) doesn’t want to hire post MBAs without pre MBA experience. You could maybe come in as like a senior asc or something
