The above isnít really relevant to me though. Iím lucky enough to be in a white shoe form which pays cravath, but Iím also ultimately a yellow-skinned asian who will never make partner in my current firm. Iím exiting the ladder at year 8 like the rest, and partnership isnít my end game. Just thought Iíd share what I know.
Isn't "who will never make partner" a bit too absolute? Don't you think the white shoes have shown they're willing to hire Singaporean partners (Farhana Sharmeen, Jac Chan etc.) for Singapore offices if need be
