Sheesh, 20+ years? You should try and get a career coach to work on your resume

Yeah that was my thought too, it might be worth having someone else look at it and also checking your resume against job posts to make sure it's including the right keywords. Bear in mind that hiring patterns are super weird during the holidays, so you may not get a lot of interest due to time of year rather than anything else

Time to get that resume looked at by a professional and optimized. Upwork has lots of freelancers who specialize in this. Good luck!

I’m extremely anxious about an upcoming interview at a very small business transactional firm. I desperately need this to work out, but I’m not a stellar applicant. I had a gap between school and the bar due to a serious family emergency as well, and this would be my first time working at a firm as an associate. My resume and cover letter got me in the door, but now I need to sell myself right. I can’t get this wrong. My alma’s career services is not helping. Any advice is appreciated!

So just interviewed for a Revenue Agent position supposed to receive initial offer within the next couple of weeks based on what the manager was saying. Part of me definitely likes the idea of a 40hr work week with no other crazy obligations/metrics or needing to do extracurricular stuff to get a bump in pay. The manager guy said generally they put you at a low step so pay obviously isn’t spectacular. Now entering my 3rd year as a SM is it worth taking a pay hit or would you try industry?

Recently laid off at a small gov contracting firm (non cyclical to this economy). My wife and I are expecting and thankfully live below our means.

They at one point extended the potential of partnership and I’d like more, and they have the money. Should I ask for lump sum or spread it out?
