Aside from Georgetown, any other MBA programs recommended for international development/finance? Looking to pivot from my current business/tech strategy work.
I'm considering pivoting to copywriting because that's the part of my role I'm best at -- a lot of the account management stuff is draining, but I can whip out social and marketing copy quickly & I enjoy it. Wondering if anyone has insight / leads on making the jump from accounts to the copy side when applying for jobs? 5 YOE, 3 in-agency with a mix of automotive and pharma + a side gig as a published author with muliple books (hoping that'll help on the creative / copy end?) Thank you!

Starting to wonder why I am not a consultant or something similar since they get paid the same/ more than big law and have many many many more perks and travel. Is there a way for a litigator to be hired at a consulting firm? Not in house legal.

I’m a young 4th yr atty and the managing partner has offered me the option to buy out the firm or receive a great recommendation if I choose I’d rather transition elsewhere. I love my firm and other people would lose their jobs if I don’t buy it out, but I don’t think I could afford a buyout at this stage of my life. Are there any other ways to transition the firm to me or is a buyout the only option? (This is all due to a complicated situation out of the partner’s control)

Was promoted to director a few months back, and just had a recruiter reach out to me about a GSD role at a good agency on solid brands. I like my current team/account, but it would be a big salary and title bump. I’m just not sure I’m “ready” to oversee everything on several accounts. Could be imposter syndrome, but do you feel obligated to take a shot at interviewing for roles that are a “big opportunity” when they come up & just hope you can figure out how to succeed once you get in the door?
