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’m an incoming Northeast M7 MBA student and I wanted to break into either the McKinsey or BCG Miami office as I’m from the area. I was wondering how I could go about recruiting for Miami. Would I just recruit with the on campus recruiters and let them know my location preference and they would potentially place me there for internships/FT or would I have to network and apply directly with the Miami office? Also, any thoughts on the Miami offices themselves? I imagine they are very tourism heavy

Any tips for building a client base from scratch? I’m a 4th year associate at a firm of 12 attorneys.

I equate a book to autonomy and career choice and pressure is on.
