SEEKING RESUME FEEDBACK AND DIRECTION

Dear fellow WSO-ers - I am an analyst with three years of experience, who graduated with a BS in Finance from a tiny non-target VA liberal arts school in May 2008. During school I had a great internship with the real estate acqusition subsidiary of my college, managed a $500,000 student investment fund, and sold real estate. Post graduate experience includes 1 year M&A experience at a small firm in Boston, and 1 year of distressed debt investing experience at a small firm in Miami.

Bottom line - what are may chances for breaking into BB in NY? or a small hedge fund?
Here is my resume: http://www.razume.com/documents/17921
Yes I have pretty solid experience and I read a lot and am very knowledgeable of the markets, analysis, psychology, asset classes, manager styles, etc. BUT I come from a no name school and two no name firms - when it comes to the Street....

I cannot break into NY unless I hit the job search from an angle other than applying, I need to create an opportunity, hit up bars in the financial district or find a banker's lost cell phone....please send resume feedback and advice for job sourcing - I am moving to NY on Sunday, January 9th.

THANKS!
