Yea I mean just make it somewhat representative. If you’ve been an M&A associate for one year, everyone in the industry knows what you’ve really been doing (signature pages, pdf, etc.).

In the interview scenario, just make sure you talk about the diligence process and how you’ve learned to highlight critical risks for the business person and also provide mitigation/solutions together with the problem.

Manage diligence process, draft ancillary documents and disclosure schedules, coordinate execution and review of closing deliverables, provide general corporate guidance

Ask a recruiter to give you some samples. Read a few and you will get a sense of the language you wanna use and what kind of info to put it. Just use those as references- dont copy and paste!

I quit my previous job approximately 5-6 months ago due to toxic culture and being pressured to commit fraud. I fear hiring managers see that I’ve been out of work for this time and may assume I was fired or laid off. Additionally I’ve had a couple interviews where company “X” interviewers have commented on this and in an effort to not bad mouth my previous employer I’m stuck with a generic answer like I want to take my career to the next level with Company “X.” I’m stuck. Thoughts/strategies?

I’ve had four interviews in the past week, and I’ve noticed that HMs and recruiters aren’t as serious as they should be: 1. They got up in the middle of the interview to answer the door. 2. Biting their nails throughout the entire interview while working on something else. 3. Mentioned that I need to be available 24/7 and can only offer a title less than I currently am because they don’t have a high budget. Is there anything that I can do stop this? Maybe consider another industry?
