I work as a government lawyer and don’t have to bill.

There are other practice areas where you can flat fee bill too so you avoid billable hours (trademarks, some/most estate work, etc). If you work for yourself you can better control your work load and hours. Just a thought

I'm looking for some insight into a hiring process I'm currently in.

I had a phone screen on 8/10, Zoom interview on 8/17, writing materials deadline on 8/22, in-person interview with leadership team on 8/31, and reference checks last week.

Now, I have a "short Zoom interview" with the VP tomorrow; the hiring manager just scheduled it today. What does this mean? Are they stuck between two candidates, is it a job offer, something else?

How to be a good Public speaker and be good at presenting? I have 7 years of experience but I’m not good at presenting nor that good at public speaking.

Some feedback I got was to collect my train of thoughts during an interview with considerable preparation, don't make things too dumbed down, build my comfort level, and let things flow..

I constantly find that I am being blamed for mistakes on documents/correspondence that are being reviewed by associates I am working under. Recently one of these mistakes went undetected for a month or so before it was flagged and at that point the deal had already closed. I understand that a paralegal is there to review and be detail oriented, however there is a certain level of knowledge needed to catch the more substantive mistakes. Does anyone have advice on handling this type of criticism?
