Is your group hiring any first year analyst or 1st year laterals with 4 months exp?

Hey guys, I am currently at a small MM, and I was originally very happy to get the job and thought I would truly enjoy the small office life (less than 8 bankers), but I am not a fan anymore. When I first started, the head banker lead me to believe I would be involved in plenty of both business development (pitching) and the financial models, but after four months, I have realized he is a micro manager and we barely pitch (he is super picky on we who pitch to), which leads to me not having much work I can do. Fortunately, we are on a live deal (under $2mil ebitda), but besides this deal (which was a repeat client), I don't see myself staying at this firm. I want to stay busy and learn as much as possible early in my career, and I do not mind heavy hours.

I realize I may have to "start over" in an an analyst program, but I would much rather do that than stay in my current role. Does anyone at a bigger MM or BB know of an opening within their group or another for an entry level/ 1st year analyst role? I am not picky on location, though I would prefer NYC, SF, LA, Atlanta, or Charlotte.

Please PM me! I am open to phone screens too.

And yes, I am networking and reaching back out to bankers I had previously met with for FT recruiting

I have been emailing, and have had a few phone calls with both bankers that I have previously networked with, and some that I just began initiating dialogue with. I know they may not have an opening now, but I want to be "kept in mind" for when they hear of an opening.

I know this post reeks of desperation, but since I visit this site often, I figured I might as well at least try to connect with some people on here.

Pretty sure that "I'm bored" isn't going to win you points when interviewing for a new job...

Currently: future psychiatrist (med school =P)
Previously: investor relations (top consulting firm), M&A consulting (Big 4), M&A banking (MM)

I didn't realize I could change it, so now I am not MMorBust anymore. I just changed it, but I am not necessarily BBorBust.

I have a better question- is anyone hiring MSF's post-graduation time (around May/June) through lateral positions and not through FT-Analyst progs?
