Recruiting into VC is hard. There is no usual way - I was really lucky. But there are ways to increase the probability by being more knowledgeable about how to do it. So, unveiling a Notion book I've been writing about how to break into early stage VC. There's a lot of content about 'what is VC' and this hopes to partially fill the gap of 'how to'.
