Can I go from PE to consulting? I am a mid career PE professional. Mostly in growth capital. I always had wanted to spend some time in strategy consulting. But in undergrad I failed to get an offer, despite making it to final round at nearly all the MBBs. Later I went to b school but it was not a target school for consulting. Now I am more than ten years in finance. Can I try to get an experienced hire role in consulting given PE experience? Is that nuts? Is this “grass is greener” syndrome?
