Currently summering at a MM PE. Non-target, and want to make the jump to NY for SA recruit. I'll be paying out of my own pocket in flying down and networking. I'm not concerned about being able to set up chats - what I am concerned about is the logistics. I can't exactly just get off work for multiple weekdays to do this. So, the best I can do is fly Friday after work, arrive Saturday morning presumably, and fly back Monday morning on the red-eye for work. Maybe I can push for a Monday - but I would prefer not going down that route.
This would mean that these coffee chats would be on the weekend - how bad is this?
Also - would you suggest targetting analysts? Or VPs?
