What is the best way to prepare for a summer associate role in BigLaw (V100 firm)?
Any books, YouTube channels, or other resources resources you would recommend?
Up until last weekend, I was in the recruitment process for a summer associate role at EY-Parthenon Strategy, London UK. They sent me an email saying the program was cancelled due to covid, but I've heard nothing about this from any other source, so I'm a little suspicious...
Hello! I just passed the patent bar a couple of months ago so I'm applying to my first patent agent roles. However, I only have a masters in law, not a JD, so I have no summer associate experience, and every position wants experience first. How did some of you other patent agents ￼get your first positions if you've never worked in a law firm before? Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thank you so much!￼
I’m a third-year associate with an Am Law 200, doing mostly transactional corporate/M&A work. I took the job right out of law school after working at the firm as a summer associate, but my goal has always been to move to a position with more litigation work. I've learned that there aren’t any litigation opportunities within my firm, so I'm looking for positions elsewhere. Any advice on next steps to make this transition and what the market might be like for a junior associate with my experience?
Night student (fulltime lit. paralegal) looking for 2021 summer associate position. OCI postponed..should I email alumni at big firms to chat/network? Is that welcomed? Decent grades & on law review.
Laid off from AMLaw200 firm due to coronavirus. Had great grades first year of law school. Top of class. Able to secure summer associate position at this firm, led to first year associate position. But I did poorly after the first year of law school and graduated below 3.0 gpa. Do I have a shot at another big law firm? Seems that so many place an emphasis on grades rather than relevant experience. *sigh*

Hey quick question looking for feedback. I am currently working as a business applications analyst for a financial institution and I have an MBA in information systems management.

I’m watching the creativity awards on ad age. I decided to take a shot everytime I see a POC nominated. So its been 35 minutes and I have only seen one. But that wasn’t even the surprising part. When they went to the Inclusion award that’s when I just started laughing at the amount of Karen’s and Micheals in position. Not one person with a shade of color was in the category lol 🤦🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️

Hi all, I was offered 19 LPA by FIS for Lead Analyst project management in Mohali location. I have 9.5 years of experience and 3.5 years of scrum master experience. I have negotiated and asked for around 22 LPA as I’m holding another offer by accenture with 21 LPA (16.8 L fixed), Gurgaon locations .

Does FIS consider renegotiation once offer letter is rolled out.

Seeking advice. I work in fashion as a Creative Producer and I'm looking to transition to a PM or Digital Producer role with an AD agency to get more experience. I haven't been able to land a PM role because I'm lacking agency experience and no one seems to want to train a newbie. Should I take a pay cut (possibly entry level role) for an opportunity to get the digital experience I need? Would love some feedback!

Any tips? They said a quiz, but it wasn't a personality quiz.
What they sent was a form to see if I'd match their culture? Which I'd get, but why ask "How messy is your desk on a scale of 1-10? Be honest." All the other questions were standard like name, what does this role mean to you etc.
- Do they think messy = disorganized/bad worker?
-Maybe messy is creative? I've been told that's possible.
I'm not messy, just seems odd to toss it in between regular questions. Is it intrusive?

Most online articles give advice about how to resign but do not specify when in the formal process that's appropriate. Cheers
