Alright boys, I tried to start my own quant fund with a friend from my masters. The track record is decent so far, but a year and a half have passed, and it is clear that raising money is going to take time. So, I need a job. Problem is, I've not the faintest clue where my experience lands me at the moment. Applying to everything, but guidance would be appreciated.
Finance and Accounting Undergrad - Super not a target school
Masters in Economics - Target school (one of the two British ones)
No internships or jobs at bulge brackets. Hedge fund slot on resume probably looks like I'm making things up.
Can code in Python, do not consider myself very good though.
Can do LBO/DCF/ basic crap that undergrads can also do, but not very experienced in real world deals.
Can do econometric models, but not an A tier econometrician.
Problem is, I don't consider any of my skills A grade. WTF do I try for? Should I just be an analyst at some IBank? Is trying for PE/ Quant funds worth bothering with? Is ER even hiring at all nowadays?
Most of all, how do I network now? I can't really network in London anymore, and my old non-target-school network is worth barely anything.
