Recruiters will if they see exactly what they're looking for in your bio/book. You got a better chance of connecting with CDs because they can see beyond your book... the good ones at least.

Need advice on how to resign as a partner. I am a young partner at a very small firm (~5 partners). Our work has been slow & I am very concerned about the future of the firm & my income particularly (paid set % of firm profit, not based on personal performance). I have had several informational meetings about moving in-house & am pretty far along with one company, but don’t know how long the job hunt will take. Do I owe firm a convo now or only after I find a position? Don’t want to burn bridges

POV: I’m a corporate junior associate and I am 250 hours behind my target to make hours this year (need 2k for bonus). Am I just SOL at this point? My fear is that I’m busting my ass and saying yes to every deal to try to make it up but if I don’t make my hours anyway, I didn’t have to try so hard and stress. (Also, I have about 2 weeks of vacation planned before the holidays so I’ll have to make that up too)

While submitting a salary counter on a role I was offered, I listed valid points on why I deserved a higher sum for the responsibilities. Recruiter brought up my diversity being a key negotiator and awkwardly asked me “what are you” since the person making financial decisions will “want to know.” I am a “racially ambiguous” POC and while I answered in order to save face, this made me extremely uncomfortable. I accepted the job but can’t shake how inappropriate and dehumanizing this felt.
