Going around the headhunter after not making it past the resume screen
and interested in making the jump to . I am a pre- manager at MBB now with very good reviews. Didn't get past the headhunter resume screen but I have a strong profile for this fund (top target, 4.0 in computer science, lots of relevant tech experience at and pre-MBB). I'm thinking about networking with a partner (he is an alum of my school) at this fund to still try and get my foot in the door. Is this a waste of time for me to try? If not, how long is appropriate for me to ask to schedule the call for?
