When to start recruiting for Corp Dev?
Started my first year in IB recently and have gotten some headhunter emails and Linkedin inmails about private equity already. I think I'm more likely to go down the Corp Dev route and I know the process is much less structured and on an as-needed basis. So should I realistically start looking and applying when I'm one year in? Earlier? Closer to 2 years in? I'm guessing if I were to find a Corp Dev job, then they'd want me to start fairly quickly after so its not something I'd recruit for way in advance. I know I'm barely into my IB stint but getting the PE messages made me start thinking so would like to get a better sense of how I should plan.
