I'm new to this site so I appologize if this has been asked a million times,

I graduated with an accounting degree this May and I'm currently an intern at a Big 4 doing consulting and am pretty certain I will be leaving with a nice offer at the end but I've learned this summer that it's not what I'd like to do with my career. I've always had the ever so popular goal of ending my career with a hedge fund and with this internship ending I've started to research paths on how to get there.

Asset Management seems like a good beginning but I wanted to see what you're guys thought are on getting your foot in the door with an accounting degree and Big 4 intern experience (not much I know). Is AM the right place to look and what are ways I can network or be proactive while looking for a job?

Just want to reiterate that I'm new to this forum, just looking for insight. Thanks a lot!
