I go to a target school and have a SA IBD internship, but am considering applying to other places for full time positions. During the SA recruitment process, I was told to focus my networking efforts on alumni. I am not so familiar with the FT process, and I was wondering if it makes a difference if you network with alumni in terms of the process, or if it is merely recommended to network with alumni because alumni like to help out students from their school. I ask this because I realized there are a few people I know through an organization I am involved with that I could reach out to, but are not alumni of the school I go to.
Any help is much appreciated!
