Last Friday while I was poorly navigating North Carolina, a tipster passed along an enthusiastic message that he received from a Grant Thornton National Talent Acquisition bounty hunter. And from the sounds of it, GT wants some fresh faces in their forensics group:

Due to a national growth initiative, we are expanding our Advisory practice in the Chicago office. I came across your background and thought you would have a good network in the area based on your impressive credentials. We are currently looking to bring individuals at several levels in the Forensics, Investigative and Dispute Services group. These positions are due to growth, have the ability to make an impact immediately and advance quickly. It is a very exciting time for the firm and we are slated to double revenue by 2015. 
 
If you’re interested in considering opportunities and are interested in just having an exploratory conversation, I’d be glad to set up a convenient time to speak with you. Otherwise, if you happen to know of anyone who might be interested in joining our firm, please feel free to pass along my contact information or theirs. 
Our tipster turned down the opportunity — he was looking for six figures, sports cars, etc. — but should you have some "impressive credentials"  and "a good network" in Chicago, give them a ring.
