Apply for a role you seem overqualified for on paper. With 15 YOE target roles that say 12+, not 15+. Google looks at experience directly applicable to the role, not total YOE.

Have you read The Google Resume? I found that very helpful when putting together mine for the roles I applied to.

Make sure you meet the minimum qualifications for the role you are applying for as well.

Started my 2.5 year old at a My Gym, we’ve gone twice now. He is super nervous but I can tell he is excited and loving it on the inside. Ever so slowly he is trying a few new things, and he is crying less while there. I can’t wait to watch him when he finally throws his body around and laughs with another kid. Today’s class had me in tears because I’m so sad that he is scared to be around others and so proud that he is slowly opening up. Sigh.

3 years ago was recruited away from D to a PE portfolio company to run M&A and other strategy work. Things have gone well and company is prepping for exit. Thinking about going back to consulting after exit: what options are out there? I left D as an M and would only consider returning as “senior” SM or higher. Who else is hiring at higher levels in M&A? What does starting comp look like for SM (or equivalent) role?
