Hi all,

I'm planning to recruit for BX SA 2017. I am a rising junior from a target school. Any advice on how to approach BX recruiting from undergrad? Met one BX guy in the NY office recently.

Thank you a;ll

I'm going to say there will be 2,000+ candidates applying for the same role. Without knowing any of your qualifications, I'm also going to say that a large amount of them will be as/more qualified than you for the role.

Here's some advice: don't put all your eggs in one basket. You met a dude at BX, nice, go shoot him an email and buy him coffee. Maybe he'll help you out, maybe not. I would recommend to start listing out every REPE firm that hires interns and start connecting with them one way or another.

It's all a numbers game. The most highly qualified candidates get shot down all the time and the ones that put too much focus on a short list of "target' firms can end up with an empty basket.
