Any user feedback on hoteling software? Our team is looking at SpaceIQ and AgilQuest right now.

Resume question. Do you include contract work on your resume or not if you have substantial reputable firm experience since (e.g. 5-6 years with the same firm)? Is having it in there better than the gap (~7 month gap) after law school? Just for full details, I was set to work at a small practice (~2 senior attorneys) and they rescinded due to losing a major client while I was studying for the bar in mid July) Thanks in advance for any advice!

Hi everyone! I’m new to the bowl. I’m new to podcasting. I’m basically new to life. I’ve had an interest in voiceover for years but could never figure out what avenue to go in. Podcasting feels like the right fit, but I don’t know how to get started, nor how to choose a compelling theme. Any tips to help me advance through the learning curve quicker? Note: I have a MacBook Pro, USB mic, quality headphones, and a little sound dampening recording box for the mic.

I’ve been lucky enough to go to Europe a few times as a kid and I want my fiancé and I to go there on our honeymoon. We’ll be going 5+ months after the wedding and I want to go to a few different countries and I am curious if anyone has used a travel agent? We never used them growing up and I don’t like structured tours or all inclusive type vacations but it would be helpful for booking flights or specific towns to stay in. Has anyone just done it on their own or did you find the agent helpful?
