Happy new year!
I am a junior M&A associate at a V5. Am running diligence, writing first draft of the DD executive summary, drafting ancillary documents/SEC filings and drafting discrete sections of the transaction document. My hours are very high and I think that I am well-regarded.
Tips/advice for getting higher in the deal team food chain? There is another junior ~6 months more senior than me who is taking the first shot at drafting the transaction document whom I really admire/respect-- would love to get to his level.
Let me know if I am being a typical neurotic junior or if there is anything affirmative that I can be doing. Thanks!
Odd that there's someone ~6 months more senior than you (did you/he clerk?) - that's a weird gap amount. But people progress at different stages. I might talk to a well-regarded mid-level/senior associate whom you feel comfortable talking to about what steps you could/should be taking to progress. You're probably doing fine though, don't stress
