Launching Your Private Equity Career

Interviewed by: David Snow

November 1, 2012

Are you a recent college or B-school graduate plotting a career in private equity? Our expert panel provides the career intelligence you need to understand an industry that’s not known for transparency.

This authoritative conversation features Michael Feiner, Head of Human Capital at Irving Place Capital; Ben Sanders, a Principal in Korn/Ferry International’s private equity practice; and Mark Emery, President of the U.S. Operations Group at The Jordan Company. Topics discussed: What is the right background and personality for a private equity career? How is headcount changing within private equity firms? Do you need to come from a “pedigree” school to break in?

This is an exceptional group to guide your private equity career: Feiner oversees firm- and portfolio-level human capital issues for a major private equity firm, following a distinguished career managing people issues in the corporate world; Sanders specializes in private equity for a preeminent search firm; and Emery leads an operations team, a group with ever-increasing importance in the industry.
