Working for investing legends
« on: July 19, 2018, 06:04:44 AM »
WB worked for a legend (BG) and so did Klarman (MP) and a few others at an early stage of their career.

Has anyone here worked for (or currently is) a so called "legend"? How did you get into that seat?

All the legends read 500 pages / day. Just continue opening quality topics and at some point they will take notice.

Please be nice, and honestly, please give me a break here.

tol1 asked a question out in the open. If you have nothing specificific & construtive to add, why does that make you post something like the replies that tol1 has got here so far here in this topic?

Thanks - it is a legitimate and interesting question. I am investor myself (beginning of my career) and am aware that many "legends" simply work on their own. However, if possible, I'd be keen to hear how proteges have managed to get their seat.

Meaning part of the firm in the beginning?

Sure. Follow your dreams, relentlessly, and do your own work.

I would try finding alumni that work in related shops, try to get a gig thru them, make a good name for urself, then try to make a jump to the fund u are interested in.
