Yeah totally fine. And if it’s a HH that’s reputable/has lots of clients (CPI, amnity, etc.) worth getting on the phone and building the relationship. Think it’s fair to say you’re not looking to leave exactly yet but thinking about it. Obviously would make it clear you’re interested in PE

I have an opportunity to take a contract to hire position with a previous client hotel chain at a 60% increase in my current salary. The catch is that it’s only for 6 mos. If I staff after that, it drops to ~170K, but with great benefits and position. Or I could not; could be cut loose, or move on. Any advice? Hoping to hear a success story, but I’ll take anything.
