Dad's a partner at a PE shop how do I use it to network?Subscribe
Hi, y'all this may seem like a dumb question so rip away if you want. My father just became a partner at a PE shop a few years ago (shop size~ 10B aum). Having a family member in this industry is pretty new to me and I'm not sure how to use it to network myself into an IB job. I know the other partners in the firm are very well connected in the banking scene in my city so I know they could introduce me to the right people. My story is, I go to a top state school think (UF,UT,UVA,UCLA) I'm getting my masters and undergrad in accounting in one of those 4+1 programs. I've interned at a big 4 as well done an internship at boutique IB shop. I have an ok GPA (3.3-3.4) so I recruited for FT both BB and MM, I ended up not getting any offers. After that I turned around and thought I was going to be going full time at the Boutique shop I had previously interned with, but that opportunity just closed up due to lack of deal flow. I've never been the one to use "Daddys connections" to get a job, but given the current circumstances, I'm thinking I'm going to have to play this card. How should I approach my situation?
