Hey all, long time lurker first time poster. Just wanted to share my background and answer questions for those interested.
Background: 7 years of investment research experience prior to b-school, mostly in equities (some credit) with half of that on the buyside at a hedge fund; sectors covered included technology, specialty finance, insurance and CMBS. After b-school (2013) have been in a HY/Distressed analyst role covering the tech and telecom sectors at a credit hedge fund. Education wise, have a double major from a top tier/semi-target, MBA from a top 10 and the CFA designation.
Given that its recruiting season, I am happy to share my thoughts and perspectives on the process including: 1) types of candidates, 2) networking, 3) interviewing, etc. As well as my experiences thus far and any other questions, etc. that I can hopefully shed some light on.
