London HF recruiting - from ER
Third year analyst here in a top 3 ranked II team from abank in London and graduated from Oxbridge. Loved investing ever since i was a kid, super passionate about the markets and looking to move to the buyside, preferably SM as a generalist. Can anyone shed some light on how HF recruiting works here? Have not been getting as many HH reaching out on linkedin as i would have hoped, especially when i hear some of the US based analyst literally getting pelted with inbounds from HHs... Should I be reaching out to HHs directly and asking if they have suitable positions? Message HFs directly? Been feeling a bit discouraged given the lack of postings on linkedin/efinancial careers and even worse response rate when i apply - surprising as I thought my background would get me looks at least. Any help would be much appreciated.
Edit: Maybe to get the ball rolling I saw AKO post on linkedin for a short analyst
has an internal recruiting team and uses HHs as well, though obviously this is in the MM space
