Hi, I just started my first year at a high-tier MM IB in a well-regarded industry group. I am really enjoying the work so far, how the culture is, and I am happy with where I am at. All the other first year analysts have began discussing the PE recruitment timeline, but I am interested in Corporate Development (CD) and Venture Capital (VC) in my industry vertical (potentially another one as well but I know sticking to my industry is far easier and I am enjoying it thus far). I have four topics/questions I would like to know more about:
1) Any insight around the timeline for CD and/or VC recruiting
2) What the CD and/or VC process looks like
3) Any advice on what I should be doing throughout the processes, especially on what I should be doing right now
4) I would also like to know what recruiting outside of the region of your IB is like in CD and/or VC if possible
Happy to answer any questions as long as I can keep it vague enough. Thank you all for the help in advance!
