I’m currently a senior associate on the ops side at a PE firm. I’m looking to transition into the deal side. Does anyone have any tips / suggestions on navigating this process and/or how I should present myself in interviews?

If all someone does is throw you into their firm's referral system, does it matter who? For example, senior associate (friend) vs. director (stranger). Also, is there a higher chance if you get referred by someone in the practice you're applying for?

Rising third year in big law here, trying to figure out what people use as a writing sample when applying to the government? I have drafted briefs but never without input and edits from partners (and it is always a partner or senior associate filing them). Any memos I have written would be privileged. But I also don’t really want to submit something I wrote in law school. Any advice?

There are 2 people I can ask for a referral: manager at another office (different city) or senior associate at the same office. Is one better than the other for landing an interview?

Currently working as a Senior Associate in Corporate Finance for a publishing company. Interviewing for start-ups to join the FP&A team leveraging my current FP&A skills. Made it to final rounds of two well known NYC start up companies. A senior leader (chief revenue officer) of one of our business units has pitched a Chief of Staff role for me where I would help him run the business, manage his direct reports and perform strategic analysis. A little torn...Thoughts?
