Having Trouble With First Rounds
Hi guys, as the title suggests I'm having trouble getting first rounds. I'm currently at a non-HYP Ivy, 4.0 GPA, 3 relevant finance internships in PE/VC/, and involvement in on-campus finance clubs. I'm also ex-foreign military.
I network with 2-4 people at every firm, but the only 3 interviews I've gotten a look from is where I've had a warm connection (introduced to MD by mutual connection).
Am I not talking to enough people? I asked a close mentor if I come across as "odd" (too aggressive, too eager..etc) but apparently, that is not an issue. Wondering what I can do better.
