Had a good time having drinks with him at one of the DWS events before he made the big time.

Lindsey placed me in all three of my jobs. She likely won’t be placing into her current employer.

The level of interest Iíve received from DWS has declined, but that probably has something to do with me being older and less marketable. My recruiter calls me back and responds quickly to my emails but she doesnít really come to me often with jobs.

Again, thatís not a knock on dws, as I really donít hear much from any recruiters. When I was a student and then new fellow in early 90s I would get calls from multiple recruiters every week. Part of that was my age and experience and pay were a fit for more jobs. But I think a bigger part of it is that the CAS was WAY smaller back then. In the early 90s, if you were an actuary with some decent industry experience it was rare that there was an fcas whose name you hadnít at least heard before. So when an fcas level job came up the odds were high that you would get a call from at least one recruiter about it, because there wasnít a super big pool of potential candidates.

Also imo there are now a handful of reputable recruiting firms, including dws, who dominate the market. Back in the old days there were more individual players who were waking up and making recruiting calls in their jammies, just trying to hit a big score.
