Left my consulting job after 2.25 years in October 2019 for a venture backed startup. Laid off in March 2020. Joined a VC fund as an intern shorty after, but our fundraise (for our fund) got pushed back.

I was approached about helping grow a small executive recruitment firm focused on private technology companies. I’ll be chief of staff. The company takes $150k/placement + equity. The co expects to hit $1m in rev this year. They also invest in startups.

Should I do it? Is this pigeonholing?

I’ve laid off people I haven’t even hired. Two of my interns were literally born yesterday. Theres already a line item in your current paycheck for our 401K, since you’ll work here in 7 short years.

How do you guys deal with burnout? This job was amazing when I started and the pay is good, but I feel like I’m being ground down a little more every day. I’ve been applying to AE jobs elsewhere but I’m competing with everyone who’s been laid off at this point I’m happy to get a rejection instead of being ghosted by the hiring manager. Any tips on getting out of this mindset? I feel trapped.

I was fired at my previous firm and someone who also worked there just joined my team. It was a really awkward time and very toxic. I'm not sure how much this person knows about my sudden "departure". My current team doesn't know anything about my past and I prefer it stays that way. We're going to have to talk sometime, but I'm not sure what to say if they ask what happened. Thoughts? I'm a bad liar. By the way, I'm rocking at my current firm and it's true that some jobs are not the right fit!

On the other hand, we just had a round of layoffs so who knows if there are more coming down the pipeline.

How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible?

In a perfect world I’d like to jump 5-10k with total comp totaling 100k+. This is a very similar role to what I’m doing now and honestly I would consider a lower base to get my foot in the door at this new company. Thoughts & feedback? YOE in HR = 4.5 & I have my SHRM-CP.
