Claire's Private Equity Qualifications
Experience level: Associate
10+ people coached for Private Equity
Open to working with clients outside the U.S.
After I graduated from Berkeley Haas, I spent two years as an investment banking analyst at Morgan Stanley before becoming a Private Equity Associate at The Carlyle Group. In my free time, I am a mentor for Women In Network, a non-profit organization founded to promote and encourage females in the professional world by fostering mentorships, expanding networks, and building communities. I have helped high school and college students with thinking through their future career by helping them with interview prep, talking through their interests / what they're looking for in a job, understanding the technical portions of a model / questions that would come up in an interview, and providing step-by-step guides to recruiting. I also taught 2 Berkeley Haas classes when I was a senior in college. I prepared materials for my classes, which were "Introduction to Investment Banking" and "Introduction to Buyside Financial Modelling".

Claire also coaches for Investment Banking
I was born in Beijing and grew up in Vancouver, Canada. I came to the US for college, graduating with a double major in Business Administration and Economics. After graduation, I worked as an Investment Banking Analyst at Morgan Stanley in San Francisco. I've recently wrapped up my 2 years in investment banking and started at The Carlyle Group as a Private Equity Associate in the U.S. Buyout - Technology group.
Why do I coach?
I coach because I want to be a resource for women who want to break into investment banking or private equity. I couldn't have gotten to where I am today without my mentors helping me along the way, and I want to help those who are interested in the finance industry learn more about the field, and create more connections with those considering finance as a career.
