As the responses are not that many, I'd take a shot. Why don't you catch up with colleagues from your BB in NYC and make the best of your network there? I'm sure from your grad class you'd find a few people who are in S&T. If you can get to speak with people running desks and share your story, they might have options to discuss with you.

Will look into both suggestions. As I said before, would love to get into a HF but have only invested passively so don't think I have the chops quite yet to be qualified to interview at one and convey my stock pitch/investment thesis with any formality. I think an S&T desk would be an excellent introduction.
