Are you going into an investing role? If you want to thrive at a HF you have to be passionate about investing and markets. It’s not a stepping stone to the next job. I did consulting in my past life and I know the ‘exit op’ mentality. This is the exit op. A rockstar analyst can make 7 figure salaries they’re not too many careers that can match that kind of earning

It’s more thinking through future contingencies. My friend works at Citadel and I know turnover can be high.

I want to get a sense of where people go, if they’re fired.

Another hedge fund? Large asset manager?

Not to familiar with their exit ops, but it’s definitely a specialized skill set with a finite application

Exit options are - Venture Capital, Corporate Finance, entrepreneurship, Corporate Strategy, Long only Funds, investor relations roles, sell side equity research roles

Nice, good to know there are still legit opportunities out there hahaha

Trying to figure out next career move. Im 26. What path would you chose?

1. Currently: Senior associate in GE @ secondaries firm. Path to partner. Will have $1b AUM with 3rd fund raised. WLB is great - avg 40 hrs/week. Culture is rough b/c partner dynamics. Leadership is uninspiring. 5 days a week in office with rare work remote option. Don’t love only doing secondaries.

2. Move to VC or another GE shop, one that does more primary. Find more inspiring people to work around, better mentors.
