Thanks for taking the time to read this.
I'm a graduating senior right now and accepted a job offer back in October to work at a large Asset Management firm for after I graduate. Since then I've been partying, going out, and basically catching up on all of the fun things I missed out on because of recruiting and worrying too much about my GPA.
My question though has to do with networking. I got the initial interview at this company because I cold emailed an alumni and did an informational interview with him.
The office is fairly lean and they only take 1 analyst a year. However, from searching on LinkedIn for people who've worked there in the past, it seems like a lot of them are working in asset management or private equity.
Should I try to get in contact with my school alumni right now who worked at this AM firm who are working in the places I want to work in after my analyst stint is over while I'm still in college? I'd probably have to cold email them and they probably know the people I'm going to be working with. I'm also not entirely certain on what I would talk about also since I already have a job lined up.
