Consulting

So the Promo Board just approved my promo to Associate Partner. It will be effective as of Jan 2. Do you think that recruiters and hiring mgrs will find it sketchy if I applied for new jobs in Jan?

Why would it be sketchy? People move all the time. Just after a promo, just before a promo, and anywhere in between

No harm interviewing- but keep in mind if you just made AP at your current firm it will be much more difficult to succeed in the new firm since you will not only face the learning curve but also rebuild the network learn the culture etc

I can defend my reasoning for a move during an interview - but i am trying to figure out how others will perceive it when they are looking at my resume for the first time.

Personally, i don’t think its an issue. If anything, people will be intrigued to know why. But my best friend thinks that it might raise suspicion ... so thought i should run it by some 🐠 .
