Google hedge funds in your area. Email and call 20-30 funds per day, everyday, until someone offers you the chance to interview. After that it's up to you to explain how you can add value. Effort and humility go a long way.

Being smart enough to use the search function on a forum about hedge funds to review the answers to the other half dozen thread topics identical to this one is a start.

@ Analyst 2 in CorpDev, couldn't have said it better myself. That and this crazy invention called the "google" where all sorts of crazy ass info is stored...

But since a self-starting/initiative-taking approach along with exceptional acumen/acuity for research and critical thinking/problem solving are essential to success in any HF investments role, sounds like there's a long hard learning curve up ahead lol

Walking through the door is usually the best way. If windows are open it can be a suitable second option.

Step 1) Procure brick
Step 2) Throw brick into a window pane of a hedgefund
Step 3) Climb in throw window

Congrats, you are into a hedge fund
