Friendly advice: maybe you should borrow some money (alternatively consider short term subletting part of your current lodgings) to get on the CQF anyway: think what a prime spot (Edit: vantage point) that will be to scout tomorrow's strongest candidates! Approach them under the guise of classmate-friendship, then send them to be your drone army of interviewees. The work you are thinking of I'm sure is a numbers game. See what a lackluster headhunter is Grigori Perelman's mom: she has only one candidate (though a very bright one). Well she ain't the top HH, Selby Jennings is.Let's take a step back now. I commend you on self-actualization and finding a new path to profit with this HH/CQF idea. However you have only taken one step and the journey ahead is still long. In today's environment would it not be quicker to scour internet clippings for articles/interviews with current big-firms'-big-boys? Maybe find some specialized place where those in the know congregate. Arthur Dent has spelled out part of your plan. However it might be that depth is limited, after you place 10 candidates there is no more room for you the 11th, or times are changing, every few candidates the kind of profile required goes out of scope in favor of a newer flavor: you'd need to be one step ahead. I think you might explore some newer methods to beat these issues: find someone currently doing your dream job who shares your overall physical build preferably unmarried, learn to mimic his stance and walk, study his mannerisms and personal history then once you've built up a measure of confidence jump in with facial reconstruction surgery, remove the chap and take his place: problem solved.Hth.
