I recently joined the firm as an associate a month ago fresh out of business school. Having had a limited amount of prior experience in the financial industry before my MBA (I did have a stellar record of equity recommendations while running our school's student fund - size approx $2.2 mm) I was looking towards gaining as much experience as possible before branching out towards running/ (very long term - maybe 10 years from now).
At this stage, I am not sure what exactly to do career-wise. A few questions:
(1) How far do
(2) what should I be looking at first?
(3) I have had limited experience with executive recruiters. Will they be able to help in my case?
Any advice/suggestions/pointers will be very helpful (even if they're not strictly related to the questions above). This is not the time to feel sorry for myself - none of this was my fault, and I would much rather concentrate on getting myself out of this situation quickly. I'll post more questions as and when I think of them.
