4th Annual Internship Drive

Both Yale and MIT are holding their annual PE/VC conferences later this week – Yale on Friday, MIT on Saturday – and it’s certain that both will be crawling with MBA candidates in search of future work. To those planning to graduate this spring, I wish you the best of luck. For you first-year folks, however, I’m pleased to introduce our 4th Annual Internship Drive.

If you are a private equity firm in search of a summer intern who currently is a first-year MBA candidate, please contact me via email. All types of firms may apply, including VC, buyout, mezzanine, distressed and financial. Ditto for geigraphy.

In your emails, please include your firm name, job location and type of business (i.e., VC/LBO/etc.). I will keep your firm name confidential (unless you ask me not to), with the listing looking like:
Early-stage VC firm with healthcare focus, New York City.

One change this year is that the listings will be posted in the MBA Forum of peHUB.com, instead of in this space. There are over 600 MBA candidates already signed up, and will be more once I respond to a backlog of access requests (don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about you…). Each respondent will be directed to an anonymous Yahoo email account that I’ll set up for each firm.

So please get me your information as soon as possible. We have placed well over 100 summer interns via this program, and some have gone on to fulltime employment at their internship site following graduation. So, again, please get those emails of interest to me so that we can post the internship listings ASAP.
