Headhunter has reached out to me with 2 opportunities, one with a megafund and another for a small fund I've never heard of and wouldn't be interested in joining. The headhunter is pushing me to consider the small fund. Can be clear with the headhunter that don't want to proceed with the small fund, or does that risk the headhunter not connecting me with the megafund?

The headhunter may also not be sure if you’re a fit for the megafund, or that opportunity may not be 100% confirmed. Either way I agree with M1 that you should check both out and then maybe 1-2 more.

What’s the harm in talking about both? Let the headhunter give their pitch for the small one along with the larger and then reject if it’s truly not what you want.

I’ve thought of some more to get to 10…

8. Benchmarking! Sure, it’s a different job/fund, but information is power
9. Networking - you never know where people end up or what’s around the corner
10. Open your mindset - challenge yourself. You’ve ruled it out without knowing that much about it. That small fund might surprise you. And remember megafunds were once smaller funds

Good luck!!

Can't deny that I'm seriously pissed off about it.

Associates, do you frequently have to take work from attorneys located in your office but outside your practice group?

I’m a mid level engineer and my team is overwhelmed. There’s more work than we can complete in the timelines that leadership/product has committed to, which is causing leadership to override technical decisions seemingly to meet those deadlines. An example would be routing all live traffic to a feature which was not fully tested, instead of waiting until testing is complete or having that change be dormant and the feature enabled later. Has anyone dealt with this type of issue?
