Are you an ORM if you are asian but from a low income first gen background ?

Many schools ask for the zip code you grew up in to try to get that extra layer if consideration for the circumstances you grew up in. You’ll probably be advantaged compared to ORMs who were obviously born with a silver spoon in their mouth, but it’s probably on you to tell that story and the experiences you’ve had to get that edge

Yeah. They don’t ask for family income on the forms, and a lot of Asian immigrants are first gen.

Yup, I think the first gen helps a bit but I think there are a lot of us applying

This might sound dumb but what is considered a 1st generation?

My parents were born in China, but I was born here. My dad did his undergrad at NYU though. Will I be considered 1st gen?

If we’re talking about first generation American, you would definitely count

I worked as a technical PM for a medium-sized adtech company in NYC in charge of 2 technical teams, and the business intelligence team.

On Thursday I was informed by the lead Product Owner and the head of HR that leadership had decided that the project management office was no longer necessary for the company and all three of us, the director and the two technical PMs, were being let go. None of us were given any notice.

If you know of any opportunities I can apply for, please reach out.

It is common practice at my small firm by two main partners to fly through transactions for clients regardless of potential conflicts (for the company) or issues that may arise. It is often chaotic and has led to lawsuits being filed by investors against the clients. I know this is expected from time to time but I feel like I’m not getting the proper exposure to doing deals the right way. Would it be better at a larger firm or is this common anywhere? Mostly deal with microcap companies.
