Why would you use an agency? Get networking with the partners at the firm you want to join and then pitch them your idea about why you would be better working with them rather than against them.

Absolutely. Exec recruiter puts a price on your head and makes you less attractive. Best to have an advocate at the firm you are targeting that can vouch for you. If you need an exec recruiter it implies you are likely not networked well enough. Good luck.

So let me ask the obvious question: if you don’t have connections to MBB, and they’re not actively looking for folks who do what you do, why would they want to bring you in as a partner?

like

Thanks! Very helpful. I will do that for the big 4 and other like firms. I don’t have a connection to the MBB’s. What’s the best way to approach them knowing I don’t have a network there?

What is your specialty?

I think there are enough MBB partners here

Are you voluntarily looking or seeing the writing on the wall?

I’m just tapping my personal network instead of an agency.

A Google recruiter found me on LI 2yrs ago. I went down the hiring path for three months for a UX position. Great experience & I did well all the way through. I made it to the final interview where I was invited on-site to Mountain View, CA. After so much time and many interviews, I didn’t get a final offer. It was disappointing. All my recruiter could tell me was that I had amazingly high marks for Googliness but couldn’t give me specifics on why I didn’t make it all the way through…

I feel like such a shitty mom. I am 40 weeks and 4 days and I have not gone into labor yet. The first time I had a C-section, so I cannot be induced for fear of uterine rupture. But if I wait too long for the onset of natural labor for my planned VbAC, then I might be risking the baby’s health. After pumping myself up fir a VbAC and studying breathing techniques and being ready to give birth, I am just at an impasse. My doc scheduled a csection for Thursday because she doesn’t want to wait
