Idk, why do you want to join PE other than prestige and comp?

I mean I have my thoughts, but was curious about others...

Because I think like an investor / want to own and manage assets long term, and while consulting and I banking give you valuable technical skill sets in one way or another, neither emphasizes truly looking at a business as an investment (I banking is about presenting a business in terms of the client’s objectives, not properly valuing a business and then putting your money where your mouth is)

Skin in the game. I also joked that you must hear that from every consultant

if you like pipe/peg - you want to do that type of work all the time and be the client.
