Whether you 're sending cold emails, attending networking calls, coffee chats, networking events, is it better to reach out to Analysts, Associates, or even higher level people?
Now, before any of you say: "Well MDs....no shit". I already know that the general answer is that connecting with MDs or VPs will have more weight because...well, they're an MD or VP of the group. But can it still be helpful for recruiting if you have a coffee chat with an Analyst? To those who successfully entered IB through networking, did you reach out the most to Analysts, Associates, or MDs?
