Does anyone else get really bad Asian glow? Or am a total lightweight like me? Pretty sure I’m allergic to alcohol. I see Asians at events drinking crazy amounts with no issues. Am I alone? 😭
I’m trying to break into the communication world, but everything I see requires 3-5 years experience. Is there such a thing as an entry level position any more?
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

My husband says he feels interrogated when I ask questions. How do I learn to take off my attorney hat at home / be gentler when asking him questions? I didn’t even realize I was guilty of this…
Does anyone have advice on how to give helpful feedback on briefs that are not working? Without getting sucked too in the weeds or taking it over writing it myself? I’m working with a strategist thats fallen through the cracks at our agency. I really want to lift them up but finding their their briefs convoluted, repetitive and regurgitations of the ask. Overwhelmed with where to start
Does anyone else think that central air is actually not that great? It’s noisy, and not sure how clean the air really is. I think I miss radiators.

Have an associate 2 years junior to me with whom I work frequently.. they seem to make an intentional point of not responding to my emails (but promptly responds to client, partner, etc), but 75 percent of time will eventually do what I ask. It has become a distraction. Generally I get good upward reviews - I’m respectful of juniors and expect them to have a life, etc. I’m unsure why the passive aggression. Any tips on handling or do I have to just deal with it? I’m worried about a confrontation
Anyone have experience with delinquent CLE credits? I was sworn in in fall 2019 and in around the summer/fall of 2021, took a leave of absence for health reasons from my firm for a few months. Did not realize that I hadn’t completed my 2nd Year Newly Admitted Attorney CLE requirement by fall 2021. Been a couple of months since I realized my error and have completed all outstanding credits and about to apply for a retroactive extension with NY authority. Anyone been in a similar sitch? Advice?

Thoughts on giving your two + weeks notice after you’ve been told you’re receiving a bonus (and it would actually be paid while you’re still at your current firm just after you’ve told them you’re leaving)? Or does everyone just wait until their bonus actually hits their bank account? Being able to give my two weeks early/mid December would be a lot better for me but don’t want to jeopardize not getting my bonus (which comes usually 3rd week of December).
Considering a 2 year move from Sydney to New York - I’m a female lawyer working in banking & finance, just recently made a senior associate. Any advice on living conditions in NY and general work lifestyle? Thanks!!
I’ve been in NY biglaw for almost 3 years now. Was given the opportunity to go to a satellite office to help build the practice. I have the option to return in 2 or 3 years if I don’t love it. Would you take it? The pay is a bit more.
Accepted an offer of employment with a mid-sized firm to begin in a couple of months. I’ve always wanted to shoot for big law but haven’t had the opportunity thus far. Overall, I accepted because I didn’t want to take the opportunity for granted in addition to the uncertainty with hiring due to covid. Would it be an issue to shoot for a big law opportunity in the interim? I know how this looks and sounds, so I definitely don’t want to set a precedent that I deal in bad faith.
I just received a couple of interviews for major law firms through OCI(Hogan Lovells, Paul Hastings, Kirkland and Ellis). I would love some tips and pointers that can help me through the interview! Thank you!
