Hi everyone! I'm looking to emerge into the IT tech field and have recently completed the CompTIA A+ as well as Okta and Google certifications. I currently work in customer service and utilize a lot of tech and SaaS tools but other then training for the certifications I have very little experience as an IT administrator.

I need to hold a fair amount of cash for ~1 year (a third of my gross pay). But I don’t need “instant” access to it - maybe over 6 months when asked. Does it make sense to DCA it into an ETF/ keep it in a HYSA/or something else?

As someone involved in first round interviews, here's some quick tips fellow fish 🐟 when being interviewed remotely: - technical blips happen so have some initiatives ready at hand to offer to the panel prior to starting. i.e. Use the comments section, have a phone number ready to continue verbally or use a different video service (I recommend Google Meet) - A less distracting background means we're focused solely on you and not the cat scratching the chair to pieces Continued...

I think I’m going to contact a bunch of legal recruiters and tell them I’m looking to hire, set a bunch of calls just to take up their time, then reveal that I’m not really hiring after all. Just had the most unprofessional experience with a recruiter who bait and switched a position just to set a call and then hung up in the middle without calling back. What a waste of time.
Considering making a lateral move as a biglaw (Kirkland/Sidley/Cleary/Paul Weiss type firm) mid level litigation associate in a major market to a similar firm in the same market. I don’t dislike my current firm or work, have very strong reviews, and good relationships with some key partners. Main motivation for lateraling is for potential of a significant signing bonus given the current landscape, and general uncertainty about future at my current firm. Would appreciate any advice/insights.
Spending the New Year’s holiday in Annapolis MD. Will be there for about a week. Any family-friendly recommendations on fun things to do? (The youngest in our group is 16). We’ll have our own car so we also don’t mind a good drive somewhere.
Articling student in Canada (8 month internship with potential hireback), currently doing transactional work. I’m WFH and having a hard time building relationships with partners. I’m friendly/chat with associates and am on great terms with one partner who gives me work often, but not much else. The firm “encourages” reaching out to partners to chat, though I’ve tried and been essentially ignored. Partners rarely have enough time to give me feedback, so I feel they don’t have time to chat.
