So moving from banking to PE/HF has been well documented. I know the PE networking process, while tough, is made easier for bankers due to the presence of headhunters, and many consulting firms have internal job boards for corporate development positions....
Can anyone talk a little about moving into a development/strategy role for a corporation after the 2 year analyst program?
- Specifically how to land interviews and network for these jobs despite working 100hr weeks?
- Are you pretty much stuck to trying to get in with clients that you covered in your industry group or are there smart ways to approach companies outside of that bubble?
Any advice or stories touching on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
