Just chatted with a buddy. A few key takeaways: a) will be challenging without IB background, b) many funds are moving towards hiring some ops folks which may be a good option, c) if serious about PE, could consider pursuing IB for a year or two first

Try to get staffed on some M&A engagements, particularly ones where you’d be working on ODD/CDD, synergies and value capture, or Target Operating Model and Organizational Designs. That’s the kind of work that is really about understanding how a company works, how it compares in the market, and how to restructure it to be more efficient and more profitable. Outside of that, learn how to build Leveraged Buyout and Discounted Cash Flow models. Maybe take the CFA Lvl 1 exam, just to show you have the technical finance skills. After that if you still can’t network your way into at least an interview, maybe go back to school for an MBA and specialize in finance, while taking as many PE related courses as possible.
