If recruiting is done through headhunters, does networking still help?O
I go to a school with alumni at almost every major PE firm.
Going to be joining a BB after graduation as a first year banking analyst. Interested in PE after banking. Does it make sense to network with alumni the same way I did for banking positions or does it not matter because the headhunters are now the gatekeepers?
There are alumni at the big search firms too. Should I network with them?
Thanks for your help!
