Exit Opportunites Out of VC?

This is kind of a weird question, but I've read a lot about the "sourcing model" at places like Summit and BVP. What do those analysts do after a few years not having found a deal? Is it easy to get into other PE jobs if they haven't necessarily gotten the strong modeling/quant experience at other IBs?

It seems like their marketability rests exclusively on their knack for calling companies...

I'm interested only because I've seen some VCs recruit at my campus full-time this September (undergrad at top 5 school), and I'm wondering what I'd do with experience like this. I'm sure you could work at an industry firm in the industry you are covering (i.e. software, pharma) but can you lateral into another shop?
