How To Get a Job At a Hedge Fund / 'Tiger Cub' Family Tree

We've got a quick guest post from Hunter at Distressed Debt Investing that we're sure many readers will be interested in, entitled: How to Get a Job at a Hedge Fund. Here it is:

As Jay can attest to, one of the more rewarding experiences of financial blogging is the ability to answer readers' questions ranging from: "Do you like XYZ stock?" to "Do you think business school is for me?" to "What do you think about this hedge fund manager?" and beyond. One question that I personally get, more often than not, is "How do I get a hedge fund job?" This is not an easy question to answer in a few short paragraph email. So, I decided to create a new blog, focused solely on the process (from A to Z...i.e. resume building to salary negotiations) of getting a hedge fund job. Not lacking in originality...I decided to entitle the blog "How to Get a Hedge Fund Job" In the coming weeks, I am going to lay out for readers, in the most practical way possible, my thoughts on the best way to lay out your resume, to get the interviews, what kind of questions you will get asked in the interview, etc. In tribute to Jay, and all the hard work he has done following Julian Robertson's Tiger Cubs, I worked with a few friends to lay out, to the best of our knowledge, the list of Julian Robertson's Tiger Cubs (Fund Name and Principal). I hope you enjoy. If you have any questions, comments, or thoughts, please shoot me an email: Hunter [at] distressed-debt-investing [dot] com.
