M&A associate looking to lateral and one of my target firms just made a bunch of recent hires near my experience level. In this M&A lateral craze, are firms still actively considering applicants/granting interviews even if immediate needs are met or they don’t have an opening listed on website?

Baby is almost 6mo and has a flat spot on the back of his head (right side). The pediatrician referred us to a physical therapist who suggested exercises that have him look the opposite way of his flat spot. They said PT is just as effective as a helmet if done early. But we put him in daycare during the day and I don’t know for sure if he’s getting a proper amount of “baby exercise”. Anyone ever been in a similar position? I wanted to avoid a helmet but thinking it may be best.
