Advice on Growth Equity Analyst Recruiting

Hello! I'm an incoming BB/EB SA that is interested in GE opportunities for FT. My original plan was to do the traditional 2 years of IB and then exit to GE/tech PE, but the increasing number of Analyst programs have caught my eye. It would be great to get some advice from people on how I should navigate my career. Specifically interested in GA/Insight and the MF Growth shops. 

I know sourcing is a major part...how much of the total work is sourcing? Is this just cold-calling or are there other methods? Do analysts get do due diligence/modeling through the deal process? Would my experience be limited to cold-calling in Growth?
