Any advice on how best to “pitch” myself when a recruiter asks for an estimate of how many times I’ve drafted specific types of briefs/other motions? I have almost 2 years under my belt, for reference, so not a ton of experience to pull from unfortunately. My job search has been discouraging, and this position would be a dream, so any feedback will be much appreciated.

Even if you didn’t do every part of a particular motion and supporting docs, be sure to count the parts that you did work on.

If you haven’t had experience, be sure to tell the recruiter what type of work you do to get up to speed (like reviewing reference material, reviewing samples, asking colleagues) etc and the outcome (like judge commended you for your first appearance on x, etc).

Is this a recruiter for a particular firm or an independent recruiter?

Hi everyone! I am relatively new to consulting space. I worked with Deloitte in a research role, but have joined an MBB firm at a more front end role.

I wish to know does people care about your looks in consulting (specially when you are on a client facing role?) I am an Indian male, and I have acne (not a lot, but considerable). Cont. in comments

All, this is my first post and I just want to share that I passed the first Amazon interview for Technical Program Manager and am heading to on-site virtual interviews! I have 20 years of corporate tech in a traditional F500 company (top 50). The only thing I can say that I like about my current job is the work-life balance and some of the people. But the work itself is soul crushing and the industry is stagnant. To those who are 40+ years old, is it crazy to change now?
