Had a very promising interview and conversation with the president of a company I was looking to join as counsel, and felt sure to land the job. However when I asked for a hybrid schedule due to the long commute, it was a tough sell for him. I didn’t get the job. Now, 2 months later, they repost the listing. Should I consider simply reaching out via email to the HR manager or president to restate my continued interest?

I am applying to law school and reaching out to folks at my BL firm for recommend letters. I have 2 so far: one from a sr. associate and one from my manager, both who know me very well. I also have a letter from a professor. Would it be superfluous to request a letter from a partner (former co-head of practice group)? The partner is very supportive and even asked if I could be enticed to come back to the firm after school. Most schools only require 2-3 letters. Is there a con to having more?

Is it appropriate to ask about the comp/benefits the partner group makes at a regional consultancy I’m interviewing with (top 30)?

I’m already a senior manager so just don’t want to join somewhere with not much room for growth even if I do join partnership.
