5th Annual Internship Rodeo

Update: We’ve got 25 firms participating so far, so please keep ’em coming.

It’s that time of year, when young MBA candidates’ thoughts turn to flights of summer internships. So let’s help them out, through our 5th Annual Internship Rodeo.

The way this works is that private equity firms should contact me via email if you’re looking for a summer intern from the current crop of first-year MBA candidates. All types of firms need apply — VC, LBO, I-banks, Mezzanine, Consulting, Funds-of-Funds, etc. Ditto for geography.

In your emails, please include your firm name, job location and type of business (i.e., VC/LBO/etc.). You also may include any additional information you would like posted.

Your firm name will be kept confidential, unless you specifically request it to be disclosed (which about 30% of firms requested last year).

Once compiled, the listings will be posted in the peHUB MBA Forum, an online message-board only accessible to current MBA candidates. It currently has around 950 members, and that’s sure to grow once word of the Rodeo gets around. Responses will be directed to an anonymous email account that I will set up for you, unless you also let me know of an alternate email address you prefer.

So please get me your information as soon as possible. We have placed around 200 summer interns via this program, and many 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.

There is no charge for this service.

*** Please remember that this is only to recruit first-year MBA candidates for summer internships. If you are looking to recruit for second-years or other “permanent” positions, please use our Careers section. Job ads only cost $99, and stay up there for two weeks.
