Left my consulting job after 2.25 years in October 2019 for a venture backed startup. Laid off in March 2020. Joined a VC fund as an intern shorty after, but our fundraise (for our fund) got pushed back.

I was approached about helping grow a small executive recruitment firm focused on private technology companies. I’ll be chief of staff. The company takes $150k/placement + equity. The co expects to hit $1m in rev this year. They also invest in startups.

Should I do it? Is this pigeonholing?

My experience in a nutshell:
-Joined agency before 40
-Stayed over a decade, the money was good
-A divorce kept me dependent on a significant salary/benefits
-Lost job during Covid layoffs in spring

Now it’s contracts and reinvention. Trying to pivot away from agency work and think about the next decade. It’s not easy to reinvent but it was inevitable. Agency shelf life is limited and life after agency world requires imagination

How do you deal when you know you’re just so burnt out? I feel it— everything is magnified, home life feels more chaotic. I’m looking for jobs. Getting nowhere and lots of automated rejection notes.
