Silver Lake Kick-off?

Anyone hear if Silver Lake has kicked off summer 2024 associate recruitment this month yet? CPI has ghosted me after asking if I'd be interested in coffee chats with the team in December….

I'm at a bank and in a group that has placed at SLP historically but just wondering if I already got cut due to my non-target school alum status lol.

Yeah, you probably got your resume submitted, but it never got picked for coffee chats. It's just the way it works with headhunters and the process. They blast everyone to gather interest and if you don't hear back, you just have to assume you're resume is either back of pile or you didn't get selected. What I realized over many years of working headhunters is that radio silence is 99% a ding. They will call every single number, text and leave you 10+ voicemails if you move forward or get an offer. Just move on as it'll be best for your sake.

how much does school matter? do you not get any points for being in a good group as a non-target?
