Ask A Legal Recruiter

I did an initial interview with a firm Thursday morning. They asked for references and I provided them the following day along with my thank you note. In past experiences, I would have heard something by now unless they were not interested at all. Am I wrong to just write this one off?

It’s only Monday so I wouldn’t count it out just yet. In my last interview process it took about 3-5 days for them to get through the reference & background checks.

Your references are likely very busy people so it can take a few days to get on their calendars

It’s been a crazy week. Give them a little time. If you don’t hear back by Friday, shoot them a quick message in the afternoon wishing them a nice weekend and to let you know if they have any issue getting in touch with your references. Good luck!

Got promoted to C this year but still anticipate being underpaid. My director pretty much confirmed that given market conditions. I want to switch jobs to be paid fairly faster. Given I know my value compared to my peers, do I wait until September when promotions go into effect and I’m actually a C to start applying to jobs? I also won’t know my new salary until end of August. Can I negotiate a salary not based on current pay but what I should be at compared to my peers?

Isn't it amusing when people complain how certain VCs have a lock on the "best deals" & superior "proprietary deal flow"? Wonder how that happened? Can't possibly be because of their network. Too bad the upfront cost of an MBA is a deterrent to making a shitton of money later.
