Hello, I was recently contacted by a tech giant to join their PE fund. I was a bit surprized at first because I was not looking into this direction and I do not have a background in M&A at all. They liked my experience in a company with high expertise dealing with strategic DD and an industry where I am very knowledgeable. The position sounds very tempting but I am afraid I may not be the right fit due to my lack of knowledge on valuation and such.
Anyone here that switched from consulting to PE? if so, did you feel you had the right capabilities and knowledge dealing with the pure financial work? I would appreciate any feedback from people who took this career change.
Thanks a lot
