Hi,

I would say it's hard, especially at the later stages. For example, there are more PE alums to Harvard MBA than PE jobs post MBA. So I personally know some people with PE experience who didn't manage to secure a PE offer. The earlier you make the transition - the better.

The role is also important. It's easy to get an ops role that will not have the major benefits of PE - Carry, Bonus. Securing a PE deal desk offer is much harder

Hi,
in terms of what?

I have many former colleagues who moved to PE. Most of PE associates come from MBB and top investment banking (the other from MBA programs). Therefore in MBB you can create a strong CV for PE.

Hope it helps,
Antonello

Agree that it gets a bit more challenging when you become more senior in consulting. So move earlier if you can.

In additional, if you know PE is the place you want to go, esp the investment team, then try to be selective / more strategic in the consulting projects you work on. You likely would benefit from doing a lot more corporate development work, including Due Diligence.
