"Impact investing in sustainable energy development in Private Equity"

There is too much packed in here and doesn't make sense. Idk if this is the phrasing you submitted or just a quick summary, but I would rephrase this as:

"private equity investing focused on sustainable energy development"

or

"impact investing for sustainable energy development"

or

"using private equity to promote sustainable energy development"

Source: I work in impact investing.

Hi, assaadh!

Would love to help, but I'm not sure what the question is in your posting. When are you applying? Are you checking on your goals for next year's application, or have you already applied and you are worried about what will happen next?

If you're looking for a future application, I do think that it's helpful to have goals that make sense, and so research is good to do pre-application to see if what you describe is a reasonable path. Both PE and impact investing can be challenging to break into unless you have strong connections and the right experience. What I would do is some research into your target firms, and see the paths that their team members have taken and match this up to your own. Did anyone take a path into the industry that's similar to yours?

If you've already applied, I don't think you can go back and revise your goals now, but I'd still do that research because if you get an interview, you'll want to sound thoughtful and well informed about how you will make your goals happen.

Our web site at mbaMission has some career guides - check the PE one out!

Hope this helps!
