Hi all- So I know there is not just one way to do "networking"-but there are of course some effective and some not effective ways to go about it.
I was jw-can someone not from your school/not an alumni help you in the recruiting process/getting an interview? Because I was talking to a connection(not from my school)-and she was telling me that I should try to go the school route, and maybe best to reach out to people through your school network and go from there.
I just thought it would help to know whoever at the firm regardless if they are from my alma mater or not. Has anyone had experience/thoughts on this? Have people not from your schools still been able to help you?
Does anyone know internally how that referral/i'll get you the interview works? Because I have heard of Associates getting kids interviews if they really like them/think their capable although I know that is not traditional.
Any thoughts appreciated!
