I go to industry specific networking events. I cover real estate so I check out ULI and NAIOP every so often.

I always try to go to outside events sponsored by law firms, etc that are fin services focused. It can be tough to get out of the office, so I try to sign up for as many as possible. If I can even get to them once in a while, I make at least one contact. Good luck!

@GS1 that sounds cool. What’s your source for these law firm events?

LinkedIn

@Associate1 - I started getting email invites through work address (not sure how they got it), then asked to be on their distro for fin svces prof dev events. Potentially, I would think you could cold call the top law firms and ask to speak with someone on their prof dev team and just ask. It can’t hurt to try - and they get opportunity to make new connections.

Finished a final round at a company I really want to work for but want them to speed up the decision making process + negotiation leverage. I have an offer I got ~4 months ago that has a base salary higher than what I've been quoted and I was thinking of just changing the issue date, and then sharing that with the recruiter. I know this is obviously a little sketchy but was thinking how they could even tell. Thoughts?

Does anyone have insight into WeWork or have experience working there? Talking with one of their teams right now. Certainly hesitant due to all the issues over past year plus the fact that COVID is hitting real estate but seems like it could be an opportunity to get in before they go public. Any thoughts or feedback would be appreciated!
