Was approached by a SVP and hiring manager of another IB shop. We talked, went great, he texted comp range etc. sent me a resume template to use, filled it and sent. He was waiting to hear back from MD, MD got sick. He took resume to HR actual and said I’d hear from them. Haven’t heard anything week or so later. Haven’t texted VP much as I don’t want to be creeper but really interested. Not sure how to engage at this point. At some level it seemed like a home run.
