Networking without going to target school
So... I'd like to believe I'm a solid candidate for MBB but I can't shake the feeling that without going to Wharton/Harvard/MIT/Tuck/etc or having connections I'll have a hard time getting into MBB.
For personal reasons I'd prefer to avoid studying abroad (I'm in Israel) and I've come to the conclusion that, other than leaving it more or less to chance, I'd have to network in order to get my foot in the MBB door.
My question is if there is any way I can network with MBB workers in my current position.
I know there are quite a few of my University's alums working at the local office, but I have no way of knowing their names or getting their contact info (maybe I could but it would be using a very un-straightforward manner like simply tapping into the alumni database, coz I doubt we have something as organized as a regular American alumni database).
So considering the above constraints, does anybody have tangible suggestions to help me?
I really appreciate it,
