So I’ve found a startup I want to work for. They hired a CLO earlier this year. Is it crazy to try to reach out to him and express interest if they have no job postings? FWIW I have good experience and am at a well regarded firm.

Trying to get a gauge of if my promotion raise this year was reasonable or not: I’m being promoted to manager in industry and the raise was 15.5%.

While I am grateful for the promotion and a raise, I can’t help feeling like I’m getting lowballed at the same time. Does that seem like a good increase for the situation?

Hello Legal Recruiters! What’s the market compensation for a commercial real estate associate with 1+ YOE at a small firm (20 partners) in a secondary market. I’m 10+ yrs into my career, but I made an odd for me, accidental pivot into local government/real estate about a year and a half ago, and I’m looking around. The salary for a 1+ YOE associate 10 years ago in my market was in the $50 - 70K range, but I’m guessing (hoping) that’s no longer the situation… TIA!
