If you message the hiring manager directly about a Role, what do you say? Recently did this and the HM basically responded saying the recruiting team will reach out to all applicants.

Sounds like your average hiring manager looking to place a body in a role. Most visionary leaders take time to entertain requests. Those are few and far between

2nd year associate here. Has anyone made a jump from a boutique firm to big law? I found out that I’m a front runner for a gig with an Amlaw 100. I never thought I’d have this chance having graduated from an unranked law school and still being so junior. Even though the firm asked if I’d be willing to start as a 1st year given my lack of litigation experience, it’s still a monumental upgrade/ jump. I’m nervous about the culture shock and whether I’ll cut it. Could really use some advice!
