I'd start by absorbing into the industry and have informational interviews with recruiters from agency and corporate.

- Hours are ~same (~65-80+ depending on current engagement, etc.)
- Travel + expense everything in MBB; none in big law
- Promotion easier in MBB (lockstep 2 year up or out) vs big law NEP’s, etc.
- Biglaw skews older + more men vs MBB

So I say this with complete humility and an understanding that this is a fortunate-ish situation to be in. I’m in a position where I am tied to nothing, I have no children, spouse, or house.

Because I am able to “pick up and go” I’m open to opportunities and locations. I’ve never worked with a recruiter but was hoping I could get some recommendations!
