BD. Career development. Side things that help the firm. Volunteer. Also save any interaction between you and client or manager / director that speaks to the quality of your work

Expand your network and have as many Partners go to bat for you as possible

It doesn't take much for them to talk positively about you at a CRT

I'm in a hard position where my RP is MC, but my last three engagement this FY have been with S& Partners. So I'm hoping my RP does his due diligence and really reaches out

Although the overlap, MC and S& Partners do not sit on the same CRT sessions

Could the S& partners just email your RP some quick highlights?

Yeah, that is likely what will happen. My RP has told me he'll be scheduling calls also. But the lost value is that the S& Partners will not be sitting on the CRT. So when my name comes up, my primarily ally with be my RP portraying highlights from his convos, not not personal experiences from anyone in the session

Right. I guess my issue is the opposite- my RP is basically the only partner I've worked with and he leads the CRT for my group or whatever, so there's only 1 person to talk about me...

PwC2 I'd recommend getting your coach involved so at they they can do the right level of due diligence and follow up with the S& partners. They can then relay the findings to your RP (who should also do some due diligence)...

My coach isn't the most active either, but my S& managers are. I have time with one of them next week to discuss more
