Isn’t every PE role “buy-side?” Like even if you are in portfolio ops, fund finance or another non-investing role at a PE fund, you’re still doing this on the buy-side, right? Asking out of genuine curiousity

I think OP meant investing role!

Hey all - a recent grad (class of 21) really interested in an associate position at S& Deal Strategy. Found out there was an open position super late, so went ahead and reached out to alum. Have a chat for next monday, but I found out that the PwC national deadline was on Tuesday. Asked alum if it was a hard deadline and he said to apply whenever. Ended up applying on Tuesday in fear that the apps would close, but might have shot myself in the foot. Any advice on how to proceed? Strategy&

Has anyone successfully made the career move from an HR specialization to an HRBP role? If so, how? I have been working for 7 years in a very niche HR specialization and while I wear many hats on the HR team, I feel like this is hard to express to recruiters or even get an interview for an HRBP role. My niche area has really burnt me out, as it’s very political and I want to expand my horizons. I am already working on completing my GPHR certification. Any other tips?

Feeling that my brain has been on “auto pilot” mode for years. I am Principal in one of the top consulting firms, promoted on fast track basis, so have not been “lazy” and doing good at work. But everything feels the same, nothing gets me intellectually stimulated anymore, and now I feel like if the trend continues, I might lose my ability to adapt and learn new things altogether. Does anybody else feel the same way? (Contd).

No answer, any insight into why?

Anyone have any thoughts on using Venmo for crypto purchases / wallet? Seems like it’s not at sophisticated, e.g., very few coin options and likely no interest for holding. Any red flags? It appears their new credit card will take the cash back you earn from purchases and auto invest in the coin (limited) of your choice. Seems intriguing but will admit I am a noob to the space
