Got sort of an exploding offer on hand. Verbal only so far and requiring decision by Monday pretty firm. Have 3 more processes ongoing in mid-late stages and expect to wrap up probably next week. Gut feeling is I want to take the company who gave the exploding offer though. Any advice on how I can respectfully wrap up other processes/ask for extension?

They gave you a verbal offer (not even on paper) on Thursday and want you to commit by Monday? Unless you are a newly minted undergrad, I would ask them to go fly a kite

If it's a verbal, just say yes and wait for the paperwork? If it's not in writing it didn't happen. Also, make sure the numbers, and benefits are accurate. If not prolong it with negotiations.

Yeah company is not the kind to not deliver so expect to get the written offer tomorrow and maybe shoot over a round of questions.

I don't accept exploding offers on the argument that a company that needs to use high pressure tactics to hire probably doesn't has underlying issues.

Well then accept it and politely inform the other folks that you are withdrawing your candidacy.

Hey! This is a difficult question but here it goes...

I started freelancing in digital marketing in 2018 and I created an agency, it's not legally registered but I have been using the name and putting myself out there as an agency.

In 2021 I started working at another agency and they made signed a non compete agreement. I left that job a few months ago and I'm back to freelancing but I'm worried about the agreement potentially being a pain in the # now or in the near future. Any advice?

How successfully do buyout Associates recruit into the startup scene?

Im a pre-MBA associate at BCG with diligence experience and a strong interest in PE. However, knowing myself, I think I will eventually want to end up in an early stage operating role.

Ideally, I would love go through a buyout shop’s Associate program to round out my skillset, but sometimes I wonder if a.) those skills will even translate to a startup and b.) I should consider a more direct path.

Would love some perspective

I got an offer that includes base, bonus and equity of 80k each year, fully vested each quarter.
