Going into my senior year and with recruiting season only a couple of months away it's time for me to really figure out what I'm doing in regards to networking to get an offer.
My background: Finishing junior year at a non-target local state university. Finance major and economics minor with a 3.93 GPA. I was able to get an FP&A internship this summer when a family friend handed the finance director my resume.
My problem/what I want to do: After graduating I'd really like to relocate to the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area, preferably for an FP&A role, but recently risk has peaked my interest. I'm just not sure how I should go about finding people to network with when I have no alumni down there, and it's not like an IB where I can easily find analysts in a small number of companies to email.
If there's anyone who's been in a similar situation, or has any advice to offer I'd appreciate it.
