I’m interviewing for an in-house PR role (mostly content/media relations) at a digital company. I’ve had 3 interviews so far and completed one extensive writing assessment (800-word article). I’m pretty sure I have the job, and had a great interview with VP of Corp. Comms. today. She mentioned she had no hesitations about my qualifications. But the HR mgr said they now want me to do a 2nd assessment “just to dot their i’s” and they want a 750-word release by Monday. Is this normal?

Jumped from biglaw pship to join ~$2B company <12 mo ago. Pitch was to come grow into GC role and have strategic seat at table. Quickly learned only opinion that matters is micromanaging CEO/controlling SH and rest of exec team kowtows to his desires as (even when wrong) plus general hostility for back office functions. Has killed long-term appeal of this gig. Trying to figure out next steps (stay a while, jump to another in-house gig, go back to private practice) and any advice appreciated.

We are thinking of pulling our 8 month old out of daycare due to delta (and no vaccine mandate) and having a nanny until she gets the vaccine. Our cleaning lady expressed interest (totally trust her) and could do it two days a week and she may have another friend do the other three days. Is this a bad idea? I trust the caregivers, just in terms of logistics. Also, there will likely be a language barrier. We are also thinking of doing a nanny share but it’s hard to find another family.

Small boutique firm /w 3 male partners. 2 partners are absolutely phenomenal mentors who encourage raising issues. As I'm in line for partnership in the next few years, I've been specifically asked to speak up. The 3rd partner is barely around and never bothers to learn staff/ new associate names. Recently he's made unintentionally demeaning comments that are directed at female associates. I want to bring it up as I don't want to stand by but don't know how or not to ruin my future at the firm.

I enjoy writing, but don’t necessarily want to do litigation or be in the courtroom (though not opposed to it but worried about lifestyle). Any thoughts/advice? Struggling pretty badly with this.
