Is the only way to break into TPG is to be contacted by a recruiter?

TPG in Fort Worth is all back office operations. Client accounting / etc. Highland Capital is well respected, but I hear comp is below street and it has an interesting culture

I think TPG pays better but that commute to FW sucks

COVID WFH has put me several time zones away from my client (I’m further west and their culture is to start the day early anyway). It’s a new project so I don’t have relationships built up.

Not a posted position so I’m the only candidate. Am I am being impatient?

I’m fully remote for 2 years now. More productive than ever. Present for my family like never before. Have met more people from my company than I would’ve if I’d rely only on bumping into them. Have a much more focused, open and dynamic creative process with my teams. My company doubled size. Why would anyone consider going to a physical place to do work that’s delivered digitally ever again, even if for a day per year?

Anybody else feel a little sentimental when they realize their toddler has lost their baby memories?

Tonight, I realized it was like I was reading it to him for the first time. I know we're forming so many great, new memories; but, it made me feel a little sad that some of our beautiful old memories will be lost.
