I just finished my first year at age/wb. TT12-121k. I hit crest and I’m wondering how my numbers look to other firms.

I would ‘advise’ you to learn the proper usage of the word “advice” before sending any emails or letters to recruiters.

When I was straight out of college I sent a bunch of resume’s out with the phrase “I’m looking foreword to hearing from you.”  Spellcheck didn’t catch it, because foreword is a word.  My dad swears that the reason I didn’t get any calls back was based on that one word mistake. 

  I did get one.  It was Jones.

My advice is you should cancel this screen name and create a new one. You have started off on the wrong foot and this group will not give you another chance.

Sometimes you just ASK FOR IT![/quote]   Yeah.  Sometimes it's just fun, in a sick and twisted sense, to walk up to the hornet's nest and give it a good whack with the stick.  Just to see what will happen of course.

Stay put, build some real value and then go shopping. You’re not ‘target’ at any firm worth working for.

I talked with Morgan a  couple of years ago.  Yes, it's true.  I did.  Had lunch with the team and everything.  I don't remember the specifics of the Rising Star program, but I do remember that it seemed like a good program.  The only caveat was that the hurdles were pretty high.  It was something like 150% T12 sign on, hit a certain goal in 18 months and you get another 150% of T12, then there was one more 100% of T12 if you kept your assets at what you started with.  All of it was a forgivable loan for 6-7 years.  For me it was something like $650K if I hit all the goals.  But you had to be out a certain number of months or less to be eligible.  It seemed like a worthwhile goal if you had a team to work with, but really difficult if you were on your own. 

My numbers are probably really fuzzy, so don't take them as factual.

I hear ya!    You’re probably immune to bee stings by now anyway.

  Stings?  What stings?
