Hi Preplounge Community,
I am currently 6 years into my job in a Private Equity fund under one of the top US banks and I am expecting a promotion to VP soon. I picked PE over consulting out of my Masters due to the location (wanted to stay in London) and also because it had aspects of both finance and strategy to it. However, as I moved up the ranks, I expected the human interaction aspect to go up and the finance aspect to decrease. That hasn't happened at my fund yet and seems to be the case across most London based mega funds where I have interviewed earlier. This has prompted me to explore consulting as a career as I increasingly see myself more interested to analyse business fundamentals and maintain relationships instead of do fundraising/analyse financials.
1. Is it possible for me to move to Dubai/SE Asia/India in a consulting role? I do not have an MBA, but have a Masters in Mgmt. degree
2. What position could I be targetting?
3. Is it an easy move? Or should I let go of this move altogether? Do I need to go via recruitment agencies or network a lot?
