PE recruiting - any need to be careful/discerning...Hola, IB analyst here, just starting to get into the process of PE recruiting. Here's my question - if random headhunters (ie other than the very well-known ones) reach out to me for my info/resume in order to try and work with me for the PE recruiting cycle, is there any harm in giving it... 2 4 years 5 months

Advice: following up after an info sessionImportant piece of advice for all of you prospective monkeys attending info sessions with banks (or any other type of firm for that matter): When you follow up with bankers after the event (which is very important to do), make sure to specifically reference things that you spoke about at the... 3 4 years 7 months
F500 Corp Dev Opportunities In The Northeast?So I've been thinking a lot about corp dev recently as my ideal exit opp whenever I decide I'm done with banking. From the nature of the work to the hours to the culture to the comp, I think it might fit the bill (thanks HarvardGrad for the fantastic info). However, it seems like all of the... 6 4 years 3 weeks
GMAT score expiration vs. b-school app timing?Hey y'all, Been a bit confused about a logistical issue. I know that GMAT scores are said to be valid for 5 years, but how does that play in to the business school application cycle? For example, if I had just taken the GMAT in June 2011, when would be the latest time I could enter business... 7 4 years 8 months
Many Thanks, Sirs and Madams of WSO - Non-Target...Just a shout out to thank all of the (helpful) denizens of this site; due in large part to your advice and musings, I, a non-target grad, just successfully obtained an offer to lateral from a MO Finance position at a BB (less than 1 year in) to an IBD position at a top-tier MM firm. Very excited to... 18 4 years 10 months
How long to study for 63/79 while working FT?Subject line says it all. Working full time in IB and need to schedule the exams. want to get them out of the way asap, but don't want to cut myself short on study time and fail. How long do I need for each? If it helps, I took econ/finance courses in college, and I self-studied the gmat for... 16 4 years 11 months

Thread subscriptions not working?For the last few days, or maybe a week, I haven't been getting my normal emails notifying me when someone comments in a thread that I commented in. Has anyone else noticed this? I hadn't changed any setting when the problem started, and I've tried messing around with my settings to fix it, but to... 13 5 years 3 months
A few beginner-esque questions re: valuation/LBOsA couple of beginner-esque questions for y'all - and yes, I've already searched, but couldn't find a clear/simple answer to these: a) What's the point of doing market comps for a public company? As in, if you're just going to use it to value the target based on what the market thinks, why not... 9 5 years 3 months
