I'm a graduate seeking a job in London. For several reasons that don't really matter at the moment, my plan was to start as a trader at an investment bank and then move to some hedge funds after a few years, like many do. Recently, I'm also considering trying to apply to hedge funds directly. This preamble was just to say that I don't know much about how hedge fund recruitment works exactly, so my apologies if my questions sound silly or obvious.
- My understanding is that, unlike banks, not every hedge fund hires graduates. If this information is correct, could anyone provide a list (on a website or whatever) of hedge funds that do hire graduates?
- Because hedge funds are small private firms, I've seen that they don't have graduate programs where one can easily apply through their websites. What's the best way to find jobs and apply then? Should I try to reach out to headhunters directly? Should I use job boards (e.g. efinancial careers)? Is there some better way to do it?
- Can anyone suggest some up-to-date/complete job board? Any suggestions on how to better reach out to HHs?
Thank you very much.
