I just interviewed a potential AD partner and as soon as I heard they “prefer to write their own scripts” I voted No. Should I have given them a chance?

If a partner refers you for a role, is it a pretty much guaranteed hire as long as you don’t shit your pants in the interview?

Signed an offer letter. Great job but a $8k pay cut. Partner and recruiter really want me. An interview from a month ago yielded today an offer with a $30k bump and a promotion. Is it in bad taste

Friend started networking for MBB 4 months before anticipated interview date. Little case prep. Partner asked “fun” question how they’d approach something ~ totally caught off guard 😟. Friend wasn’t structured, nervous, thinks the convo will hurt her. She didn’t get a reply to her follow up....(1/2)

I have a videocon interview this week. BigLaw-to-BigLaw. I’m interested in the job, but don’t feel strongly about it. Obviously, I would look presentable no matter what. But do I wear a suit and tie??? I just feel so silly about it. And I’m imaging the hiring partner in t-shirt/jeans on the other side.

Partners, have you ever been recruited by a client and turn it down? If so, were there any repercussions? I am one year from partner and being recruited by a client...looking like they will move quickly on an offer after initial interviews and I’m worried that if I turn it down it’ll be tough to sell back to that client.

I’m applying for a job that requires a writing sample. I would like to submit a sample that was filed and used in a case. The problem is, all of the samples I can submit also include a partner in the signature block and were reviewed before filing. Any tips on writing a cover letter explaining that, aside from minor revisions by the partner, the writing is my own?

I did 2.5 years at big 4 14’ to 17’ then tech sales until 12/19’ came back to big 4 and hating hours. I’m crushing it and on fast track, guy who got me back in made partner and my RL did. I’m crushing the hardest role on the project with my RP on it. I’ve been back 6 months. $130k base Just got an interview for a SI Alliance role for SW I work on. $185k base 30% bonus. More risk; less stability and guaranteed growth. It’s a insurance Policy admin.

I really liked when D started Loop feedback. The way how the manager on the project behaved totally changed otherwise he would crack jokes on me in front of everyone and I didn't say anything back to him because year end was in his hands but this Loop feedback was a big relief and all of a sudden junior practitioners also got power and definitely I saw a change in behaviour in the manager from the same day.

Just stopped breastfeeding at 7 months. Low supply, baby is biting my nipples, etc so seemed like the best thing to do. But it made me extremely sad and emotional, as if I lost a bond with my baby. I want to restart but I’m afraid of the bites. Is it normal to feel this emotional, has anyone experienced something similar?
