Lol, I thought the same thing.

Network like there no tomorrow, set up coffee chats, phone calls etc and case prep

Assuming I have from now (December) until early fall (Aug/Sept) for recruiting, what do you recommend I do in terms of networking, setting up calls, and following up?

Yes and case prep, understand structure and don’t copy frameworks

Figure out who the local recruiter is and connect with them

How do you recommend talking to a recruiter and what would you discuss?

1) find your local or campus recruiter and connect with them 2) reach out to managers -> partners who are alums of your school and get on their radar

My question is do I bill the full day even though I only put in a few hours of kick off calls and contacting folks to get access to the things I need? It’s not my fault they were disorganized. What would you do?
