Make sure you're applying to the depts that want ppl - look for their recruitment posts on linkedin etc. Don't blindly apply to depts.

Realistically, they will vet your CV and ask you for an interview within 1-1.5mths latest, if you don't get an interview callback by then, it means you did not make it to the interview stage.

If you've interviewed already, and you don't get an offer within 1 week (actually within a few days), you have failed. Acceptances are notoriously fast.

You're probably looking at a lead time of 1-2mths depending on the dept.

NOTE: The only exception is WongP, they always try to do the interview in like 1 week from your application. If you don't get an interview from WongP within 2 weeks, you likely failed.

Thanks! Also can I apply to multiple depts? i.e. dispute resolution and capital markets at the same time?, background is in dispute reso but wouldn't mind venturing into securities law.

Skadden, Latham and Gibson would be great options and would allow me to return to NYC in the event that SG does not offer the lifestyle that my family and I are looking for. We are prioritizing a safe environment whereby my child can grow up without having to perform active shooter drills at school.

Besides COLA, do these relocation packages typically including tuition fees for my child's schooling as well?

Any recommendations for recruiters whom I can reach out for more concrete information? TIA.
BUMP. Thanks in advance.

Pqe gets more and more meaningless as a concept in house la. It's about how desperate you are to want to take the gig. Obv facebook will pay you good enough to make it worthwhile to switch from private practice. If you're in a stat board or mid sized local corporation, good luck
