Operating Partner #204

Happy Thursday <<First Name>>

I set a record for myself this week: 2 days back to back in the official office, and I have not done that since February of 2020. I have enjoyed being back at least 1x per week as the new surroundings provide a bit of energy. I also enjoy casually bumping into people in the hallways, allowing for spontaneous conversations that would have never happened on zoom.

You all have been super active in sending me job descriptions for distribution in the Operating Partner, and this issue showcases those descriptions. If you are looking for a new role or know someone who is, please take a peek below—some super exciting roles across various companies.

Thank you again for subscribing. Hopefully, the NY Knicks get active in the remaining hours of the NBA Free Agency, and we see some great Super Bowl TV Commercials this weekend. I do not have a particular team to root for, so I’m all in on those commercials…

Durhamism #2860: Memory is more than a dustbin of time, stuffed with yesterday's trash. Rather, memory is a glorious grab bag of the past from which one can at leisure pluck bittersweet experiences of times gone by and relive them.
