L2 candidate with > commercial credit analyst experience. thanks. check efinancialcareers.com. there were some PE jobs listed a couple of months ago at an MM firm. i thought about applying as a way to break into PE before b school, but then i smacked myself upside the head and said “WTF? this is in DETROIT.” anyway, a few jobs come up once in a while so you might be able to find something if you are patient and look really hard.

There really is no financial district in Detroit. Most of the banks and financial firms are in Birmingham out side the city of Detroit. I would call them up cold and see what happens. If your looking for corporate jobs, GM, Ford, & Chryslar are hiring.
thanks for the tips …yeah i gotta a buddy at Ford finance divison, they get paid a decent sum but do mind numbing work and sit around alot…sounds like the UAW
I worked for 2 years to get a job in Ford Finance. I interviewed with them while I was in undergrad and they invited me to a second interview onsite, only to cancel it three days beforehand due to a hiring freeze. I kept in contact with the recruiter and a VP for the next year and a half or so. They eventually did bring me in again the day before I started my current job. I just remember sitting through the interview thinking, “Is this really what I’ve been trying for for 2 years?”. They made me an offer lower than what I was offered at my current job. I told them that and they countered and actually offered me a few thousand more, but I still turned it down. The recruiter called a few months later asking me to come in again. I explained to him what I do now and how I think it fits my skill set better than what I’d be doing at Ford, but if they had a position better suited to me I’d be interested. He got very smug and basically said they had no need for someone to do what I do (insitutional portfolio management at a multi-billion dollar foundation).
“He got very smug and basically said they had no need for someone to do what I do (insitutional portfolio management at a multi-billion dollar foundation).” In what respective role? Are you a PM?
