How to do FT recruiting

Let's say I'll be at a mid tier BB this summer with a non-target school background. I'm interested in transitioning to an EB for FT as I want to be in the classic advisory role. How do I go about interviewing for EBs during my SA stint. I've also heard that people get FT offers from their interviews before the end of the SA stint.

How do I communicate to my network at these EBs that I'm interested in FT recruiting. During my SA recruiting I built up decent networks at the EBs I wanted to be at. I don't want to raise any flags by looking to jump ship before I even start at my bank, but at the same time I don't want to miss FT recruiting, which from what I heard is significantly more informal and sometimes banks wouldn't even post an opening, people just know people who want the process and put them through the interviews

Curious if anyone can shed light onto how to do full-time recruiting when you don't have contacts in that region / city
