Is cosying up to your fund's portfolio managment team not an option? Internal transfer is usually a lot more straight-forward than lateralling externally

It seems unlikely unless OP has deal experience. PE isn't going to internally transfer someone with no deal experience.

Get an IB gig and then maybe pivot. Unfortunately, many banks are downsizing IB with the current market conditions, so it might not be what you want.

Start learning what how the investment teams develop their models. Understand how the financial statements are linked together during a model. Start speaking with people in the industry and learn the nuances. These nuances heavily influence the projections

Where is your MBA from - T30? The level 2 thing is meaningless, you and everyone else are l2 candidates. Passing l2 would yield a different story.
