Prepare for your next Private Equity Interview

Private equity firms seek to hire the cream of the crop from the investment banking and management consultant industry, but with dry powder at an all-time high, more and more private equity firms are seeking candidates from non-traditional backgrounds. Typically, private equity firms will not only challenge candidates to technical and fit-based interviews, but grueling leveraged buyout (LBO) case studies as well. These case studies can last anywhere from 4 hours to 2 days, and there are often 3 or 4 rounds of interviews before a decision is made.

 

We can help you prepare for both the interview questions and the case studies, and we help you think like a private equity investor. We can provide you with practice LBO case studies that will simulate the case study environment, and then ask detailed questions about both the model and the company, similar to a case study.

  • Practice case studies that are modelled off of real CIMs and deals
  • Master the paper LBO and all its variants
  • Understand and model transactions using a provided LBO model template
  • Most common technical, fit and deal related questions in private equity interviews
  • Learn to think like a private equity investor
    • Asking the right questions
    • Addressing due diligence issues

    • Breaking down the value of a platform
