Cutting My Losses and Moving to IB: How Does My Plan Sound?

Hey All,

Me again, the guy that let a headhunter convince him to jump ship from a $4B AUM Growth Equity fund to the soon-to-be dissolved $1B investment arm of a private trust.

Background Stats: 3.4 GPA, Top 25 School, ~$500mm closed transactions on resume, sophisticated technical skills. In my second year out of UG.

My Plan: Cut my losses and try to transition to a solid investment bank. I'm done mucking around the LMM AM world trying to find a spot at below the radar firms and want to bail into IB for the structure and stability.

My Question: What are the best resources available to start networking my way into IB?
LinkedIn and personal connects are my first line of attack, but besides that does anyone know of a good recruitment agency that works with MM firms in NY? Otherwise what online job boards are useful? Do LinkedIn applications ever get responded to?

Ugh, thought it was an actual response. Sad!
