If I have an offer to start in summer 2023, is it possible to request to start earlier? Has anyone tried to do this.

Be more specific. Is the start date June or September? When do you want to start?

You can always ask. It'll demonstrate eagerness. Worst they can say is no, we can't move the date up.

Currently august, can I move it up to say April or even Jan? Just curious

Generally the funds want to start their classes all together. Theoretically you could ask for ‘22 start (they might let you) but at least my find only has 1 starting date for associates per year

I see, thank you!

12 years and my partner won't do chores. Vent vent vent. I make 80% of our income and pay 80% of expenses. I'm also tidy but hate cleaning. Partner works 20-30 hours/ week no kids and is a slob. 3 months ago made chore list, got them to sign on the list the 50/50 split that it was fair. 3 months later I've been doing my chores they haven't done any. Brought it up today and was accused that the list was unfair they refuse and they dont have time because they must "work to subsidize your expenses"

Hi everyone! Recently got reached out to interview for a GP stakes analyst position. I find the space rather interesting, but am weary of the exit ops. I would want to go back to B-School in the next year/2 years and eventually transition to traditional PE. IMO the GP stakes position would be a good starting point into understanding investment trends among PE funds, as well as a better understanding the workings of the different departments of the LP (for a potential return). Thoughts?
