Wrote to a partner twice earlier for job in their group. He didn’t respond. I joined another firm. Now, I see a job opening posted on jobsite for his group. Do I write to him again or let it go.

He didn’t respond for a reason. Let it go, or reach out and be disappointed again.

I agree C1

Let it go man. Alot of "leaders" and other talent acquisition experts don't know an iota about sourcing and nuturing talent.

Do it OP, this time there is an opening. No harm.

Yes you are right. I often times dont do it and repented, so rooting for you

OP, let it go - honestly sometimes the reasons provided are just to provide a nice way to say ‘no’ and have to deal with legal issues and it sounds like this is one of those reasons. This sounds like a perfect situation where they are saying no. I’m sorry but move on. There are so soooo many firms that are out there. On the outside things may look all picture perfect but this might be a blessing in disguise to stay away. To C1s point - are you sure this is the kind of place you’d like to go ? A place where they don’t even want to speak with you? My suggestions - aim higher. Things always always happen for a reason and near certainly for the better.

Can you find a manager or recruiter to reach out to? Partner may not be the right point of contact for your level.

Honestly most partners get hundreds of emails a day, and a bunch of those cold emails. He might just be too busy to reply. Why don't you send a email and then immediately snag 30 min of time to talk - he will probably appreciate it

So out of 16 perhaps two comments suggested to write back. This is a director/ SM level role. I did got referred to the new job posting and did apply. HR is taking time to respond. This is where I thought I should write to him and explain my continued interest. Earlier he might not have responded. If he is trying to meet his own goals then recruitment is the last thing. But now perhaps things are getting better.

Honestly OP. I see no harm in trying again; yes it may seem desperate but partners don’t even respond to emails when you work with them. Imagine when you’re not even in the same organization. I’d try again, no harm. But prepare for a non reply that’s all

like

Lol. Yupp. That’s true.

Why not just apply through the job site like most others will do? Not like you have some special networking connect here to circumvent the standard channels. Honestly Partner was probably just like why is this rando cold emailing me we have HR screening process so I only see people who are worth my time.

Can anything be done if a partner is bullying and blackmailing you
