Enlisted—>Buyside?

Veteran

Dylan Broussard Silverdale, WA

Assuming a prior enlisted servicemember is accepted into a target school (H/P/W), are there any PE/VC/HF analyst roles that look favorably upon prior military experience?

Good Morning Dylan,

As a Marine for Life Representative, I would encourage you to reach out to me on LinkedIn as I would love to help you think the path to the buyside. I have some contacts that may be helpful and some thoughts about the journey to get there. As you stated, the target school is important, but so are the internships and contacts.

Hi Dylan! Thanks for reaching out with your question.

ACP actually held a webinar on private equity last week with Rob Healy, founder and Managing Partner of L Squared Capital Partners. The webinar introduced the fundamentals of the private equity industry. In this presentation, he shared an extensive overview of the field, the skills needed to excel and a unique perspective on industry hiring practices. I encourage you to watch the webinar: https://www.acp-usa.org/news/event/acp-presents-introduction-private-equity-rob-healy.

I hope this helps!
Megan
