Trial by fire

One week “training” early in tenure and then another week after a year. It’s more of an introduction to the culture and some of the work tools than something rigorous that actually builds skills. Above all else it’s a time to connect with peers on other offices. Real skills all developed on the job. On demand courses we have loads covering industry topics and skills (e.g. modelling, data visualisation). Also access to LinkedIn learning courses. I’m not sure how widely used they are but certainly available.

Does any company offer free subscription to services such as Coursera and Firmsconsulting etc.?

How to break into PE post MBA (HSW) if I have consulting (ACN) but no I-bank exp? I’m good with financial modeling, so I don’t think the technical interview would be a problem.

MBB -> I can get on partner track...can I ever hope to get on a similar track at KKR, etc. if I try to break in and join a smaller fund first?)
