Robin Judson?

Hi guys:

Do you have any recommendations on how to best approach Robin Judson? They have a lot of postings that I'm interested in, but my resume is a bit on the unconventional side - for example, my current fund is kind of a tier 2 fund. I've submitted resumes for them in the past but don't want them to keep seeing my resume and say no (and form a negative association).

you should reach out to them directly. email debra or robin and ask for a 30 minute chat to introduce yourself and discuss your background. obviously a lot of what they run is credit/distressed but if you're coming from PE from a fund they've heard of, they should want to speak to you. looking at their current listings though, they're mostly for RX bankers and people with a lot of prior distressed experience

I didn't use Robin but she is great and covers a lot of great funds, both the large top-tier ones and some under-the-radar ones as well. Also reach out to DSP, S1, SG, Henkel, Amity and CPI to cover the other distressed funds.

Yes Whitney and Leah should be able to help. The firms that traditionally did PE are broadly expanding with credit-roles which is why you should speak to all of them (i.e. CPI which is traditionally large cap PE, has had roles in the public credit arms of Cerberus or Ares, Marblegate etc.). Henkel used to run Anchorage's process; not sure if that changed or it went to broad syndication type-situation like Elliott does.

I would say DSP has highest market share followed by Robin; then the smaller funds a lot of times use one-off recruiters that are typically relationship-based (and mostly for senior hires vs. out-of-banking hires).
