Sometimes clients annoy me. Then I realize I really don’t care what you do as long as you pay me and that is the legal profession for you

I am new to workday! :) I am sort of making it my personal mission to learn it so we can use it. Most of the people around me are not super knowledgeable. What is the best way to learn it for HR? Is that a silly question? I am currently just watching a lot of youtube. Tools and tips appreciated.

Is there any easy way to bill for emails? At the end of each month I spend way too much time trying to collect the 0.1s from the month. I go day by day with my emails, sent then received. It’s so boring and time consuming but I have never known an easier way (aside from entering emails daily, but I find that doesn’t work either because if you get multiple emails on a case in a day, you’d have to keep editing the entry.) F billable hours

My friend is a 4th year public defender in NYC. T14 grad and easily one of the smartest, most capable attorneys and professionals I know. She finally hit the limit and is looking to pivot out of PD work when she moves to Oregon next year. Does anyone have any experience seeing this PD - private practice transition happen? She’s open to basically anything in the litigation space so long as it pays better. I assume biglaw is off the table given the market, but know she would thrive. Any advice?

I'm a Manager who would like to be promoted to Director in the near future. While reflecting on how I've developed in my role with my current company, I've realized that the only development/coaching I've received has been on how to interact with the difficult personalities on our leadership team. I know that messaging is important, but this feels really specific to individual's bad behavior.

Is this common for someone who is looking to move from Manager to Director?

Is it too late to negotiate an offer that I accepted to go in house? I start in 3 weeks. Gave notice to my firm and they offered equity partnership but I’d rather pass on that. Now I received another in house offer a bit higher than the one I accepted. Is it too late to renegotiate the first offer? The first in house offer seems a lot more desirable to me but the second in house offer might be okay too, although I would not accept it unless they go higher because of some WLB downsides. Thoughts?

Hi everyone,
So I’ve always had a rough time trying to find what role titles I would be a good fit to apply to given that my career growth has been so peculiar (HR assistant at hotel, Operations Manager at hotel, seller support at Amazon, customer experience coordinator at an IT company, talent acquisition specialist at a health org)
In those roles I normally took more in my plate than the typical role requires (hr functions, data analysis, etc)
With 6-7 years if exp what role should I look?

My confidence is very low today. I have a few difficult clients who have been disrupting meetings by trying to push current state and I’m trying to come in with different angles because I need to change quite a bit. One of the males who talks at me sent an email asking if I would like overview lessons of how this client works and that just made me feel like shit. I’m the only female on the team and when I ask my SM for help he says “this is your job” and I just need some uplifting. 😑
