I thought we should have a dedicated thread to HH, where we could share our experiences, advices, best practices, etc. I feel like HHs play a vital role in getting a PE job, but are often overlooked by applicants as an important strategic step.
For example I never knew that HHs write a characteristic on you that they share with company and therefore every conversation you have with them is important as they shape their opinion about you - that's something I wish I have known when i started as I believe I was oversharing a bit.
Also, I've came to realisation that the post-interview catch-ups with HHs is incredibaly important, too as HHs seem to report to the company your post-interview feedback (just my opinion) - another thing I wish I've known before.
Would be cool to hear your stories, questions or advice - anything at all you'd like to share about your HH expereince!
