I have had three internships as an undergrad. - wealth management, credit analyst and a boutique investment bank. My question was vague; I should have been more specific. I am aware that hedge funds are private, less regulated and only open to qualified investors. I read ALOT. Most recently, I have read Peter Lynch's "One up on Wall Street" and the Berkshire Letters to investors. I have tried networking - but there are not many well established alumni in theor hedge fund industries. I have several pitches developed for interviews. My real question is, if networking is not doing the trick, how do I get my foot in the door for an interview? How do the interview structures differ for Equity Research, Asset Management and Hedge Funds (when I am referring to sell-side)?
Adding on to that, what asset managers do I have the best shot at getting an interview with? Should I focus more on larger institutions and entities or smaller places?
