    It's only January. Start cold-calling every smaller firm that is remotely related to what you're interested in doing. Get the list of companies you want to start contacting this weekend and start hitting them on Tuesday. I say the smaller firms because they may need to hire people as needed, instead of on a recruiting calendar. Sending resumes online isn't working, so you need to try to personally connect with people. I suggest contacting a bunch of firms, not just the ones that have job postings...you might be able to get something there anyway.

    My interest is in M&A. I have been primarily targeting the larger consulting/advisory firms rather than aiming for M&A through IBD. I'm going to start contacting botiques this week and see if that gets me any responses. I wanted to swing big out of college, but realistically I'm probably a better culture fit at a smaller operation.

    Involved myself in the community and held a job that added no marketable finance skills to my resume.
