Are you stuck moving up the analyst ranks or do they find your experience useful? Assuming no existing connections.

    Have experience as a PM.

    Small hedge funds don’t want to pay to train people. They want profit centers, not cost centers.

      Likely they would obtain prior employment history.

      They typically contract with companies that collect the data from a variety of sources (public records, credit file, etc.).

      Sounds pretty shoddy, there would nt be tons of public records of where you work.

      Which is why they typically look at more than just public records.

      Like credit files and private databases of employment information.

      Which private darabases? They generally have poor coverage, apple isn't in worknumber for example. Credit files are useless.

    Come to SF with that experience. Get your RSUs, vest, and then leave.
