So what differentiates the needle from the haystack?
If you’ve thought about venturing into private equity, you may be thinking to yourself, “OK, no problem. I’ll just do a quick search, throw together a list of contacts and blast my resume out to 100-200 firms. Surely one of these will respond!” Unfortunately, this just simply isn’t the case in private equity world.
Throughout the course of a single year, the typical private equity firm will receive an average of 2,500 unsolicited executive resumes. Since a typical firm has approximately fifteen employees and only closes an average of two deals per year, time is a commodity that very few are able to utilize. In other words, you will rarely, if ever, receive a response let alone secure an introductory phone meeting.
