I started about 6 months ago in a new position in a smaller town/city. I recently ran into a partner at an firm that does primarily ID. We chatted and they extended a soft offer which would equate to about a 37% base raise and the opportunity for bonuses. It’s a small community and I don’t want to tarnish my reputation early on in my career, but the increase in pay makes me think I it would be absurd for me to stay. Thoughts? I was considering talking to my current boss to get their opinion…

Does anyone else question how they truly feel about this job? I don’t know whether I truly love it (some days I definitely do), whether I am addicted to the stress of being held hostage to emails and calls (kind of like Stockholm syndrome), or whether I am just doing this because I’ve invested so much time and money to get to where I am. Was there ever a moment where you settled and said “this is for me”. Would like to hear from more senior associates who have just doubled down on it.

How do you get billable work? Are you constantly knocking on doors & hunting it down? Or are assignments generally given to you? Do you ever have periods of being unable to find any?

I worked/billed a ton last week and Monday and Tuesday this week, and then today I didn’t have any meetings or anything and just hit a brick wall - I slept until 10am and just dealt with accumulating non-billable stuff for almost all of the day. Now I feel terrible about it. How do you keep going? I feel awful about today and have such dread about all that I have to do tomorrow 😭 I’m in a new practice area and am super grateful for the work, but the learning curve is hard and I’m struggling!

Sooooo I told the partners at my firm I wanted to get some exposure to a different practice area because I’m not loving what I do. Not abandoning my current team at all, but looking to start exploring a different practice area where there’s a need right now. It’s a small firm. “We didn’t hire you for that. We get you want to grow, but this is where you’re staying.” On the one hand, I get it. On the other hand, kind of shitty, right? Or am I wrong here?

Do you guys remember doing character and fitness? I didn't have any issues with it but apparently the bar association can contact your landlord?

I remember questioning how they could even obtain some of the stuff they are asking for if you were not forthcoming. For instance, how would they know if you've been civilly sued if that's not always public information or how would they know if you are current on your taxes?
