I’m increasingly interested in Shareholder Activism (hostile takeovers, defense, etc.). Fresh grad. What’s the best way to get into this kind of work? Certain consulting firms? Law school?

Tongue in cheek but my point is that, like VC, you need capital to do it so there are few people doing it. And like VC, these people don’t need massive teams of people. It’s something worth aiming for but I think there are incredibly high barriers to entry.

Too specific an area for a fresh grad. Is it because it sounds fancy? I’d start by getting an I-banking job.

Currently on a team that advises on PE deals, mostly LBOs, and I find the board strategy to be incredibly interesting

You’re in the wrong industry, bud. You wanna be in finance, ideally M&A or a fund manager role if you’re lucky. Then make your way up. Or get an MBA and transition into Finance

What about that is interesting to you? That’s really specific and not generally a place with a lot of roles for a inexperienced person.

It seems most people are experienced bankers or corporate lawyers. I’ve worked on a few pre-deal diligences and I’d like to form some sort of expertise on board strategy

Anyone have advice for advancing in your current role?

Any advice would be appreciated!
