[Hiring Perspective] Pinpoint Partners is a complete joke

Associate 1 in IB-M&A

My firm is looking to bring on an experienced analyst, so we engaged a few recruiting firms. My MD has a relationship with someone at Pinpoint so we gave them a look.

I just went through the resumes we got back and I kid you not, could source better candidates by going to Chipotle and randomly soliciting people eating.

The highlight was a kid whose resume shows that he dropped out of a terrible state school, and for the previous 3 years has worked at a Burger King. No finance experience whatsoever. At the bottom of his resume it was just spammed with IB buzzwords like "M&A, Precedents, Comps, DCF".

How is Pinpoint even in business?

I don't know how these idiots got my email but I get 2-3 emails from them A DAY about positions. I can't block them because it's basically a different person every time.

You can't. Just gotta block them individually - it sucks
