ASAP. If you have at least a few diligences under your belt, go for it - the more experienced post mba you are the harder it’ll be.

Pre-MBA was the optimal point of joining PE. It’s highly unlikely you will make the transition at this point in your career. Putting that limitation aside, I think your best chance is to network into PE (university alumni, Ex-Booz). Also try to proactively reach out to headhunters. You might have to “reset” your tenure if you join but it will be worth it ($$$).

Investment role or Ops? Investment would be ASAP. Would be difficult regardless but increasingly difficult otherwise. Did you do any investing role pre MBA? Ops - usually on timing and availability. Roles pop up here and there and much less structured in terms of recruiting

If you want investment role, earlier the better. Would suggest leveraging LMM network and see if you can get a job there or see from them who else is hiring. That’s your best bet.

If you have some sector expertise, I would try to leverage that as well. I’ve seen post mba exists to PE investment teams, but it’s extremely rare.
