What to pay attention to when signing a contract?Subscribe
I am looking for advice here when signing a contract.
Graduated in 2019, didn't have a good resume, so currently doing an unpaid intern for half a year. Working in a small L/S hedge fund, but the fund has its issue with raising capital, so I understand there was not enough money to pay me. But last week my boss told me something is coming next month and I think we will probably talk about a formal employment contract soon. Just want to know what are some of the basics to pay attention to here?
I know I probably don't have any leverage to negotiate, but I have turned down some of the other offers (not hedge funds, wealth management) along the way and I have already worked for free for 6 months. My boss seems to be nice so far and I believe he's satisfied with my works. Wondering what are the things that would be on the table to be discussed? Which one is the most important that I should manage to insist on to protect my interest? Should I worry about things like non-compete agreement?
