How do supervising partners deal with this.. I rarely complain to my boss, but a mid-level constantly complains about me. I suspect he BCC’s the boss on overly formal reprimand emails to me.

I recently passed the bar and need a writing sample to submit to potential employers. I went to law school a few years ago so I don’t think I should use something from law school. I have been working but everything I’ve written at my job was from a template. I think I need to write a new paper to submit but I don’t know where to start. Maybe a PT prompt from the bar exam?

I am so underutilized in my job. I’ve been there for a little over a year now. I’m an attorney with 7+ years’ experience in litigation and most of the time I’m treated like a glorified paralegal. I’ve been volunteering and writing articles to try to stay mentally stimulated. I don’t even feel like a lawyer anymore. It’s really taking a toll on me mentally. I’m actively job hunting, but there isn’t much out there right now.

Found out recently that I am not receiving an offer following final round interview at Big4. Recruiter I’ve been in contact with has been a great help and told me afterwards that they’d be more than happy to pass my resume over to other team leads looking to staff. Is this a common occurrence or was it a kind, common courtesy send-off to our time working through the hiring process together?

Curious - what is people’s thoughts on universal basic income? It would be interesting to see the numbers behind it.
