I currently work at an extremely small IB boutique (under 10 people, deals <100mm)and am looking to move to a larger company . What would be my best bet to lateral, if I had 7months of work experience? I know that there are tons of graduates out there that are looking, but for the current job market, I would assume, anybody that does off-cycle hiring would put somebody with experience before almost any 2010 grad. I might be totally off, but isn't hiring starting to pick up? How badly am I underestimating the number of experienced analysts looking for a job right now (I am not talking about the ones that got pissed about bonuses and went to a different company, because they just move around and supposedly more analysts are needed altogether)? Should I start calling headhunters (again) or apply to BBs online (is there a chance)? Any thoughts?
