Overall, I’d say that you are just about what the typical PE firm is looking for. Although you haven’t worked in IB/consulting, you’ve held positions that the people in IB/consulting strive for. And overall, your skill set acquired in your previous work has various parallels with the skill set required for PE. You could probably land a few decent offers from just tossing your resume around a bit, but I’m assuming that someone of your experience has done quite a bit of networking.
