Is it a good idea to enter Private Equity as an intern during a recession? How would job security and progression look like while rates are high and deals are low and slow?

Why would you care about job security as an intern? Go get that experience and dip, it’s not like they are going to bring you on deal team without IB etc. experience anyway

I think as an intern it would be fine, it's a temporary role no? I doubt they're going to be that deep about it, just get the experience and leave

Do it
