I’m a VP in EB Restructuring. Looking for an associate.

Are you interested in being an associate at an EB in the restructuring group? I'm a VP and looking for some good candidates. 

Drop me a PM with a few bullets on your experience, why you like restructuring, and why we should bring you in for an interview. Obviously previous rx experience is ideal.

I'd like to help bring in a few folks from WSO in to interview. Help me help you.

Baird, that you?

On the off chance it is / you have insight - curious what the deal with the team is. I never heard of them as having a big rx presence, but they seem to be ramping up aggressively. Were there some meaningful senior hires I should've noticed who are ramping up to go big?

The community is helping the VP lol. Restructuring firms are having a hard time hiring after seeing a significant amount of exits with limited interest from your traditional sources of lateral candidates.

why are you all so concerned about dunking on each other. if the guy gets 10k, and you get a job, isn't that a win-win?

If i told you that the process of sifting through random PMs on WSO, setting up follow-on calls, talking to HR to get people in, then convincing people on my team to spend time talking to you, is not worth $5,000 after tax to me, would you be surprised? Am I being ridiculous by saying I don't care about $5K after tax?

I care about helping people deserving who may not otherwise have a shot, and for bringing good talent into my group.

For VPs/MDs who try to build out a team at a bank, as in this scenario, how do they normally go about filling in junior talent? I would suspect they first look at their network, but would they really know a number of people with a certain niche background? Do the otherwise use the usually channels such as HH/formal website job postings?

Thanks for doing this.

What are some of the benefits of your EB Rx platform that would interest someone in potentially switching from another EB in Rx?

Probably not much at the analyst level except 1) you had a falling out with someone on your team or 2) you want to do more or a different kind of restructuring and ur stuck on a bad deal in your limited time as an analyst and can't get off, or 3) you want to stay as an associate and the opportunity is not there for wtvr reason.

At the associate level its a bit of the same at the analyst level + you don't see opportunity above you to grow

At the VP/MD level it's because you're not feeling like the promotion path is there or someone senior has it out for you

At the partner level it's because you're competing with your other partners and want more flexibility / white space another platform may provide for wtvr reason

I appreciate this, but I'm just an intern. If you don't mind, how would you compare career banking in RX vs in M&A? I've heard it's harder to bring in clients when the time comes

Let's be honest here, the less you rely on HR to recruit, the better it is.

Never discuss with idiots, first they drag you at their level, then they beat you with experience.

Thanks for posting. I'm not at any level of experience for what you are looking for but am interested in pursuing a career in Restructuring. I am a current Econ graduate student with prior treasury and corporate development experience. If you ever have time for an informational conversation with someone who'd like to break into restructuring, your time would be appreciated.

What advice would you give to someone who is currently working in RX consulting (AP / A&M) thinking of moving to RX banking apart from looking at the restructuringinterviews and wallstreetprep course?

Also how would you say a VP role on RX banking is diff to VP in M&A? It seems to be RX is much more MD driven than M&A to an extent? 

Would send you a DM but not based in USA so couldn't apply either way to your firm.

Guy makes a post to give people a chance to interview in case they are looking for a job and just gets tons of flak lol. Love seeing others get hate just like me. Makes me feel not alone.

Is it too late to transition into RX from an IB An1 M&A background? Does anyone have any experience in doing this
