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?

If you desperately need money then you take any job possible. If it’s not, and it’s not what you want to do then keep looking.

Wait intern to chief of staff.... this ain’t a dog at you... but would you wanna work for a place where you have no freakin business being chief of staff after your experience as an intern and some as a consultant?

Would you trust a place like that???

1. First off, if you are not employed, do you have 6 to 9 months living expenses?
- If not take the job.
- If yes, see #2

2. Where do you see yourself in 3 to 5 years and will this position help you get there?
- If not....do not accept because it's a waste of your valuable time.
