Reasons Not to Pursue Becoming Part of a Private Equity Team

Private equity is not for the faint of heart or the risk-adverse. It’s not a simple 9-5, and it’s highly stressful. It’s also not very glamorous. Still interested?

World-renowned executive recruiter and author Jeff Hyman debunks the myths and set you straight! Based on his two decades of recruiting for PE firms – and his successful stint as COO of a portfolio company– he walks you through what it’s really like to be part of this misunderstood category of companies.

Plus, he takes you step-by-step through how to get your seat at the table… if you feel up to the challenge.

This is part 2 of a 4-part series on Private Equity.

Jeff Hyman is on a simple mission: Recruit Rockstars and teach others to do the same.
