How many years of experience at current job do I need to apply for PE ops roles? Is such a switch from current company even possible or do I need a stint at an MBB to make this happen. Based on experience I’d target LMM Energy/ infrastructure PE firms.

If you weren't coming from at a target school, I'd say a good 2-3 years would get you a decent amount of experience
