I'm in my 2nd year at a leadingfirm (with several tech-related projects) and am starting to look for pre-MBA associate positions at VC/growth equity firms. I graduated from a top college. I'd appreciate advice on how to organize my search, particularly since VC recruiting is so selective.
- Do any other headhunters apart from Glocap have strong VC connections? I've found trying to work with Glocap immensely frustrating.
- Should I start cold-emailing alumni from my college (many are in VC)? If so, any pointers on how to go about it (e.g. set up informational calls first or make interest in job explicit)?
- Any firms that recruit directly without going through headhunters/personal connections?
