197 pages




Those just completing their undergraduate work or investigating the job market in anticipation of getting their MBA often seek out the glamour of working in venture capital or private equity funds. Here consultants Korb and Finkel offer their considerable expertise but warn there are always more candidates than positions. They note, however, that private equity includes such functions as "funds of funds," hybrid funds and secondary funds, and that savvy job seekers understand the hiring processes and career paths for each. They help new graduates as well as those with a few years of experience in related fields get themselves set up for a position through education and training, and help them figure out what kind of firms would be best. They give advice on resumes, interviews, compensation, working with a recruiter, and what to expect on the job. Includes resources and sample resumes.
