Seems like Denver firms have been on hiring holds (understandably so). Anyone have insight on when/if any firm will pick it up again? Was in third round of interviews when all this went down. Ugh.
How long, on average, did it take you to study before you could pass the PHR/SPHR exam? Did you think it was worth it?
2nd year associate here. Has anyone made a jump from a boutique firm to big law? I found out that I’m a front runner for a gig with an Amlaw 100. I never thought I’d have this chance having graduated from an unranked law school and still being so junior. Even though the firm asked if I’d be willing to start as a 1st year given my lack of litigation experience, it’s still a monumental upgrade/ jump. I’m nervous about the culture shock and whether I’ll cut it. Could really use some advice!
If you're interviewing at a firm that markets itself to laterals as a biglaw refuge with low billable requirements and quality of life is it okay to say in an interview that those are one of the reasons you're considering the firm?

Need to define diverse talent metrics to create a scorecard. Challenge is that the available data is based on opting in/out of self identification, that data point can change dramatically YOY. Any recommendations on metrics and scorecard?
Hi Sales Community - I’m moving from a Mid-Market sales position into Enterprise sales and would love to use this ramping period to enhance my skills. After being in sales for 4+ years I feel decently confident in my sales acumen but I never received any formal training or held an SDR role so I’ve always felt a bit underprepared. I was wondering if anyone has a good sales book recommendation that might be beneficial for me to check out as I head into a more senior role? Thanks!
Any insights on Porzio, Bromberg & Newman, P.C. (Porzio) regarding culture, compensation and work distribution?
Just got finished with two huge projects I had to turnover in a very tight timeframe. One of them barely had any revisions and the other got clobbered with redlines. Clearly the latter was the one I was working on at 2am. This is my very first assignment as a first year at big law and I wanted to make a good first impression. I feel like I squandered that opportunity.😣
Monday morning and the only thing that goes through my mind is wow I hate my job. Between the strict requirement of releasing billing time daily, high billable goal and I guess a heavy workload (and everything that comes with living through a pandemic) it’s hard to start my day excited for work. And I hate it. Makes me question why I’m doing this for a living.
Now that networking events are virtual and limited opportunity for face to face meetings - how are new leads being generated besides website traffic. How do you "network" at virtual meetings and presentations?
We had a blizzard that shut the city down (close to 50 cm of snow) and I’ve been physically unable to leave my apartment, and I’m going stir crazy. I’m in Canada and covid cases have been low, so we’ve been back in the office a bit, but now they’re up and I’m worried about what the winter will bring. At least before I could sit outside or go for a walk, but not being able to leave is not going well - I worked from my bed today which I know is bad but couldn’t even get to my desk. Any advice?
Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?
First year attorney- working at a boutique law firm for about 10 months. Just had a PIP sent to me. What do I do?
Are you folks happy with your decision to make a career in sales? I’m young working in tech sales, but also have my bachelors in psychology, and could see my self happily going for my masters maybe even PHD and being a counselor.
Just approached at work and told I was too big to be having one baby and it must be twins.
Finished Interviews and now HR wants references and to start a background check before a formal offer. But they emailed that their “max budget” for the role is $85K. That’s a pay cut for me...cont
Went for a promotion this year, didn’t get it. I should next year, barring something catastrophic happens. If I leave for another big 4 now, about 20% pay hike, plus higher title. Ultimate goal is to

Just got an invitation for a female network at my company. Am I the only one who does not fully agree with professional networks at work only based on gender? And if you like these kind of networks can you maybe explain why? I am trying to get a more nuanced view on this
Looking back at my 5 years in consulting, I learned 1 very important lesson; more of a mistake I made because I was naive back then. I chose Delta as my airline. Terrible idea.
What non prescription meds do you take to sleep on a plane (transoceanic flight)? If they don't work, what prescription meds can you get?
Decent/good performer in industry, 1.5 yoe. Any cons to bringing up promotion to my manager? (instead of waiting for them to bring it up)
We want diversity for all creative work and a dynamic culture. But our clients demand we staff for specific multi cultural briefs. I hate having to approach diverse talent this way. Thoughts on how?
