What scope? Advisor? Analyst?

Advisory team

You’re generally at an advantage (in my opinion) coming from a boutique, considering you’ve likely been tasked with much more work encompassing your past deals with smaller deal teams compared to larger banks. But why would you want to pivot to a big bank right now anyways?

But if I’d have to speculate, knowing how to delegate/manage your associates/analysts.

I’m trying to make the jump from agency > platform (not FB…more like Spotify or Twitter etc.).

So it feels weird asking them for a recommendation or referral, but that would obviously be easier than applying on the jobs site... How do I utilize my “network” without making things awkward?

Please remember that there are men married to men, women married to women, and same-gender couples with kids. We exist!
