Private Equity Firms

Landing a job with a Private Equity Firm requires analytical and interpersonal skills. A background in mergers and acquisitions with an investment banking firm can be a plus. A key activity in a private equity job is financial modeling - so be prepared to demonstrate your modeling ability. An analyst at a private equity firm is on track to earn huge income, with the average compensation package for experienced team members over $240,000 and many partners earning several million each year.

Private Equity firms manage securities of companies that are not on stock exchanges. Because there is no public marketplace for these equities, investors looking to transfer a stake in a private company have to find buyers in other ways - thus the importance of the private equity firms. Private equity holdings tend to change hands by way of merger and acquisitions, recap of the current firm structure, or taking the firm public (IPO).

The challenge when seeking private equity jobs is not only finding the opportunity but also being well prepared for the interview and offer process. The private equity and venture capital industries continue to evolve and Job Search Digest provides you with job resources that will help you find an opportunity, create your resume, and prepare for a successful interview.
